"We are honored that Kessler continues to be recognized as one of the very best rehabilitation hospitals in the country," said Sue Kida, president, Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation. "This truly reflects our unwavering commitment to providing the highest quality of care and specialized treatment to individuals with catastrophic injuries and illnesses and helping them to rebuild their lives. We are proud of our more than 2,000 Kessler employees and the work they do each day and inspired by our patients whose progress is the real measure of our success."  

According to U.S. News Managing Editor and Chief of Health Analysis Ben Harder, "U.S. News has strived to make hospital quality more transparent to healthcare consumers nationwide for 30 years."  The annual rankings, which are based on an independent survey, recognize those hospitals that excel in the treatment of individuals with complex medical needs and serve as a guide for patients, families and doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions.

"To be ranked second among the more than 1,100 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units in the country is important acknowledgement of Kessler Institute's leadership not only in patient care, but in research, education and advocacy initiatives," added Dr. Bruce M. Gans, Kessler Institute's chief medical officer.
