WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- U.S. News & World Report has once again recognized White Plains Hospital as a Best Regional Hospital for 2016/2017.
The Hospital was named highest on the list among Westchester hospitals and #15 both in the state and in the metro area, out of a total of nearly 250 hospitals in New York rated by U.S. News & World Report. This is up from their ranking of #16 and #18, respectively in 2015/2016.
