Bristol Regional is also the region’s only hospital offering experienced physicians performing surgical procedures with two state-of-the-art robots – CyberKnife® and da Vinci®.

Top-ranked quality and robotic surgery

CareChex, a well-respected national quality rating service and division of The Delta Group, selected Bristol Regional among the top 100 hospitals in the nation for major neurological surgery and trauma care. Additionally, Bristol Regional was ranked in the top 10 percent in the state for heart attack, heart failure treatment and cancer care.
