 NewYork-Presbyterian’s Psychiatry Programs Jump to #2 in the Nation in the US News & World Report Ranking

In the annual U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” rankings, published online today, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital ranks second in the nation for psychiatry and number one in New York. Psychiatry jumped two places this year, with a very strong score – less than one percentage point behind the first place program. NewYork-Presbyterian again earned the top spot among all hospitals in New York State and the New York metro region, and moved up to #6 nationally. For the 14th consecutive year, the hospital was included in the prestigious Honor Roll, which recognizes national excellence in multiple specialties.

Our stellar clinical services, with Dr. Grant Mitchell at the helm, are currently expanding to provide greater access to psychiatric care to more patients. The growth and excellence of the clinical programs rely in no small part on the insights gained from our research studies, enabling clinicians to deliver the highest quality patient-centered and evidence-based care.

“This recognition in the US News & World Report is a credit to the talent and professionalism of our faculty and the staff who support their efforts on a daily basis,” said Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, Psychiatrist-in-Chief at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center and Chairman of Psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. “Every individual in the department of Psychiatry, working collaboratively and efficiently, is dedicated to helping people with psychiatric disorders and ensure that they receive the best possible care and the support they need to reach their fullest potential as contributing members of our society. This acknowledgment - on such a national scale – is a tribute to the efforts of the entire department.”

The rankings are published at and will appear in print in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals” 2014-15 issue, available in bookstores and on newsstands August 26.
