Lankenau Medical Center, Paoli Hospital and Bryn Mawr Hospital receive elite recognition

Bryn Mawr, PA — Three Main Line Health hospitals have been named among the World’s Best Hospitals in annual rankings by Newsweek.

In the United States, Lankenau Medical Center was ranked No. 168, with Paoli Hospital at No. 185 and Bryn Mawr Hospital at No. 228 by the magazine, which based its analysis on recommendations of medical experts and various measures of patient experience and hospital quality. Newsweek also recognized Lankenau and Paoli for their performance in infection prevention, a critical area during a period when COVID-19, the flu and RSV have hit health systems hard.

“This recognition is a direct result of the incredible teamwork on the part of not only doctors and nurses but all the staff at Main Line Health,” said Jack Lynch, President and CEO, Main Line Health. “The challenges that healthcare workers have faced in the last several years are enormous. Demand for our services continues to grow and our team is as resilient as any in meeting the needs of our patients. It takes 24/7 dedication from all of our team members to earn these honors, something for which I am forever grateful.”

Newsweek’s rankings were based on a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking:

  • An international online survey sent to more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers and health care professionals
  • A survey of patient satisfaction with hospitalization
  • Surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals
  • Hospital quality metrics: patient safety, hygiene measures, waiting times and quality of treatment
