In the latest New York magazine "Best Doctors" issue, published today, 215 physicians from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital have been recognized as among the best doctors in the New York metropolitan region.
"New Yorkers are fortunate to have some of the nation's best physicians right in their backyard," says Dr. Steven J. Corwin, CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. "We are thrilled to have so many of our doctors listed in New York magazine, as it reinforces what is most important to us – providing the highest-quality, most compassionate care. We thank all of our doctors for helping to make a difference in the lives of our patients and families every day."
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital physicians, nurses and staff will soon be featured in the upcoming second season of "NY Med", the hit television series from ABC News. The show will premiere on Thursday, June 26, at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time on ABC and will run for eight weeks.
The all-new series takes an intimate look at life inside one of the busiest and largest hospitals in the nation. Dramatic and poignant medical stories are told through the voices of patients and loved ones who are facing major life challenges and the medical professionals who make up the close-knit family at NewYork-Presbyterian.
Physicians listed on New York's 17th annual "Best Doctors" list were selected through a peer-nomination process. New York magazine compiles its "Best Doctors" list using Castle Connolly's book, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, adjusting for factors including geographic balance to better reflect the magazine's readership.
