Mass general, Beth Israel, UMass Worcester, or brigham and women's for pancreatitis and necrosis?

My mom went in Sunday and has pancreatitis. Thought it was getting better but after the most recent cat scan we learned necrosis is occurring and she needs to new transferred to a different hospital for care and possible surgery involving the debriding of the pancreas and removal of gallbladder.
Does anyone have any experience at any of these hospitals with this type of situation? We ve requested brighams and now need to wait 3-4 hours to see if they have a bed. In case that falls through we would like to be prepared with backups as that she cant stay at our local hospital for too long. I realize you are not my doctor and we have prepared as much as we can with a great medical staff. I'm just looking for experiences with the above listed hospitals. Thanks for your help!
