Lahey Urology again named one of the best in America

BURLINGTON, MA—For the 11th consecutive year, Lahey Clinic was listed as one of the top hospitals in the nation for excellence in urology by U.S. News & World Report in its annual “America's Best Hospitals” guide released today. Of the thousands of medical centers in the nation, the magazine selected only 170 for distinction in any category.

Certain stringent criteria were met in being selected, among them having advanced technologies, specified procedural volume, reputation and significant staffing levels.

“We are elated that Lahey is continually recognized in ‘America's Best Hospitals' for our urology services,” said David Barrett, MD, president and chief executive officer. The Lahey team's high-quality patient care is clearly among the finest in the world and underscores our culture of excellence and multidisciplinary approach for diagnosing and treating individuals.”

Led by John A. Libertino, MD, the Department of Urology is recognized as one of the finest in the nation, with expertise in advanced minimally invasive procedures, laser surgery, reconstructive surgery, uro-oncology and sexual dysfunction. It treats a full range of upper and lower urinary tract disorders.
