Newsweek Best-in-State Hospital 2024
Four member hospitals of the Dartmouth Health system were included on the 2024 list.

Newsweek’s America's Best-In-State Hospitals 2024 list ranked Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital (APD) as the #3 hospital in New Hampshire. APD was the only New Hampshire hospital with a Patient Satisfaction award.

Four member hospitals of the Dartmouth Health system were included on the 2024 list. Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) and Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, both located in Lebanon, NH; Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center in Windsor, VT; and Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) in Bennington, VT, were included in the annual rankings.

This ranking of America's Best-In-State Hospitals 2024 recognizes 600 leading hospitals across the nation. Newsweek and global market research and consumer data firm Statista identify the top hospitals at the state level. Methodology for creating the list includes data from nationwide online surveys, results from patient surveys, hospital quality metrics, and a Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) Implementation survey. As a result, 50 state lists, as well as a list for the District of Columbia are published.

“I was thrilled to learn that four of our Dartmouth Health system members were included in Newsweek’s rankings of the nation’s top hospitals,” said Joanne M. Conroy, MD, CEO and president of Dartmouth Health. “From our academic medical center to our community hospitals, our teams pride themselves on providing world-class care and bringing all the resources of an academic medical system to a largely rural population across New Hampshire and Vermont. The inclusion of DHMC, APD, Mt. Ascutney, and SVMC on the Newsweek Best-In-State Hospitals list is a wonderful acknowledgement that we are doing something right.”
