DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger Medical Center has been named to Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals 2021. This recognition is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
“On behalf of every team member at Geisinger Medical Center that consistently provide top notch safe, quality care to our patients, we are excited to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals 2021,” said Megan Brosious, Geisinger Medical Center interim chief administrative officer. “This recognition wouldn’t be possible without a strong multidisciplinary team approach to patient care and providing the best possible patient experience.
