Sinai Named One of U.S. News & World Report’s 2009-2010 Best Hospitals


Sinai Hospital of Baltimore is ranked as one of the top hospitals in the country for neurology and neurosurgery, according to the U.S. News & World Report’s 2009-10 America’s Best Hospitals edition. Sinai ranked in the top 50 hospitals for the second time in this specialty, this year as number 38 in the nation.

Sinai’s Neurology and Neurosurgery departments are an integral part of the Sandra and Malcolm Berman Brain & Spine Institute, a unique association of specialists in orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and several other subspecialties, as well as in neurology and neurosurgery.

“It is an honor for Sinai to be recognized as one of the most prestigious medical centers in the country,” said Neil M. Meltzer, president and COO, Sinai Hospital. “A dedicated team of medical professionals treats patients at the Sandra and Malcolm Berman Brain & Spine Institute for diseases of and injuries to the brain, nervous system and spine.”

U.S. News & World Report started its annual listings to identify centers with the best levels of medical care. To be eligible for the ranking, a hospital must first belong to the Council of Teaching Hospitals, and be affiliated with a medical school or have a specified number of technology services.

The ranked specialties include cancer; diabetes and endocrine disorders; digestive disorders; geriatric care; gynecology; heart; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology; and urology.

Hospitals in the U.S. News & World Report listing are ranked on factors including reputation among specialists, mortality rates and other medical data, most of which comes from an annual survey by the American Hospital Association.

To schedule an appointment with one of our highly trained physicians and find out why LifeBridge Health is Baltimore's premier health care organization, call 410-601-WELL.

    Can you recommend a doctor for myostem gravis? I know a 75 yo lady who recently moved into the Baltimore County are, with this nasty disease and she is looking for a doctor. Thank you june crudup 720 308 5339
  2. I am sorry to hear about the woman who has myostem gravis (I think you meant myasthenia gravis?). We suggest that you call 410-601-WELL to make an appointment with Dr. Braeme Glaun, a board-certified neurologist. He should be able to assist with this problem. If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask!
  3. Nice information about best neurology hospital thanks for sharing...!!!

  • As part of #RandomActsofKindnessWeek, the @caseycares Foundation and Medieval Times Maryland brought Princess Catalina and her knights to see the kids at the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai. No jousting, but the knights had some playtime with the kids as well handing out pajamas. The pediatric staff also enjoyed meeting the royal entourage. #MedievalTimes #Fun #randomactsofkindness @medievaltimes_md
