July 31, 2015 02:23 PM
Hackensack University Health Network is pleased to announce that 175 of its affiliated healthcare providers have been recognized by (201) Magazine as Bergen’s Best Doctors and Dentists.
“I want to congratulate each of our team members on achieving this distinction,” said Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of the Hackensack University Health Network. “It is a true reflection of their dedication to providing exceptional patient-centered care every day.”
Doctors and dentists in Bergen were asked to nominate one or more colleagues in the county based on who they would choose when seeking medical and dental care. A research team investigated further, basing evaluations on peer recognition, professional achievement and disciplinary history. In the final round of the process, a professional blue ribbon panel reviewed each candidate based on specialty.
