Hackensack University Health Network is proud to congratulate 52 of its affiliated pediatricians and specialists listed in Inside Jersey magazine as the 2014 Top Doctors for Children’s Health.
“I want to congratulate the extraordinary members of our team on this significant recognition,” said Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of the Hackensack University Health Network. “These dedicated physicians fully represent our shared commitment to the highest level of patient-centered care.”
A total of 305 Top Doctors were chosen statewide. They were selected for the magazine by a Castle Connolly physician-led research team, which gave consideration to the doctors’ area of medical specialty and to their expertise as it relates to the medical needs of children.
Castle Connolly chose only physicians who are board-certified, using minimum years in practice standards and reviewing the credentials of every physician under consideration. Physicians and other healthcare professionals were surveyed by mail and online to identify excellent doctors.
