McLean Hospital is honored to announce that U.S News & World Report has ranked McLean #2 for psychiatry among all hospitals in the country, with Johns Hopkins coming in at #1 and Mass General Hospital at #3.
With this year’s results, McLean celebrates its 19th consecutive year as the #1 ranked freestanding psychiatric hospital in the country.
“With this stunning, consistently high performance over 19 consecutive years, one could say that this year is not different. However, as we know these past two years have been unparalleled in terms of the challenges and demands placed upon us by the COVID crisis,” said Scott L. Rauch, MD, president and psychiatrist in chief for McLean.
“Thus, more than ever, this is an especially meaningful recognition of our work, with each member of our hospital community contributing to positive patient outcomes, life-changing discoveries, unique training experiences, and important advocacy efforts that have a global impact.”
According to Rauch, as McLean strives to meet the needs of the people it serves, the hospital consistently seeks ways to be more efficient in all that it does, both as a freestanding psychiatric hospital and as part of an integrated healthcare system.
“With the advent of Mass General Brigham (MGB) System Behavioral & Mental Health (SBMH), McLean and the MGB system are better positioned than ever to achieve better access, outcomes, and patient experience than ever before,” he noted.
