U.S. News & World Report has ranked St. Peter’s Hospital as among the best hospitals in the nation for gynecology care, for excelling at treating women for gynecological issues such as hysterectomies and other reproductive system surgeries.
In rating nearly 5,000 hospitals across the country on key indicators of patient care, the publication ranked St. Peter’s Hospital 29th for gynecology. St. Peter’s Hospital is one of only 165 hospitals to receive a national ranking in at least one specialty.

“We are exceptionally proud of the providers, nurses, and staff at St. Peter’s Hospital,” said Mike Finegan, president of acute care at St. Peter’s Health Partners. “These rankings and ratings from U.S. News & World Report are the latest recognition of our clinical team’s talent and unwavering dedication to providing the highest quality and most compassionate care for our patients. In particular, the national ranking in gynecology is a tremendous reflection of the skill of our Women’s & Children’s Services team, and our gynecologic surgeons including gynecologic oncologists.”
U.S. News & World Report ratings, now in their 30th year, are based on data from multiple sources, including: the American Hospital Association’s Annual Survey of Hospitals; publicly available data from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services; other federal data sets; data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and other professional organizations; and surveys of board-certified physicians.
