New York Magazine Recognizes 33 Englewood Hospital

Physicians as “Best Doctors”

-More top doctors than any other NJ hospital-

Englewood, NJ (June 29, 2011) – The latest, annual roundup of the New York area’s premier physicians as featured in New York magazine’s 14th annual “Best Doctors” issue (June 13, 2011) recognizes 33 physicians practicing at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center – more “best doctors” than at any other NJ hospital.  

The magazine’s “Best Doctors” issue lists 1,144 first-rate physicians in 63 specialties that serve every medical need. The list is an abbreviated version of the annual guidebook titled Top Doctors: New York Metro Area™, which lists physicians whom Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York City research and information company, has determined to be in the top 10 percent of the region’s physicians. Castle Connolly’s book is considered an authoritative guide for healthcare consumers in search of top-notch providers. Doctors selected for inclusion in the guidebook are nominated by other medical professionals.

Douglas A. Duchak, President and CEO of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center calls the recognition well deserved. “Each day, our physicians demonstrate their commitment to providing the highest level of care to patients and their families.  And year after year, our physicians are acknowledged by their peers for their exceptional skill and commitment. We are fortunate to have an outstanding medical staff and we are proud to share in their achievements,” said Mr. Duchak.

In its selection of doctors for its guidebook, Castle Connolly (castleconnolly.com) distributes 12,000 nomination forms to medical professionals in the tri-state area. Recipients are asked to nominate those physicians who excel in their field and related fields and exhibit excellence in patient care, and to whom they would send members of their own family.
