This Lexington hospital is ranked tops in Kentucky by US News

This Lexington hospital is ranked tops in Kentucky by US News

"Academic medical centers tend to handle larger numbers of complex patients, and our specialty rankings are created to identify hospitals that provide the best care for complex patients", said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis at U.S. News.

Michigan Medicine has made a commitment to improve outcomes and patient care, which likely led to the improved rankings, said David Spahlinger, M.D., president of the University of Michigan Health System and executive vice dean for clinical affairs of the U-M Medical School.

U.S. News has ranked hospitals for the past 28 years.

"Our longstanding commitment to place patients first serves as the foundation for continued success with the U.S. News rankings".

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., ranked No. 1 on the "Best Hospitals Honor Roll", and the Cleveland Clinic ranked second. The best hospital for orthopedics is Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital received high performance rating in two adult procedures: COPD and heart failure, with the rest of the conditions and procedures settling in the average area.

U.S. News rankings incorporate measures such as patient volume, nursing staffing levels, patient survival, advanced technology and hospital reputation based on a nationwide physician survey. General was rated the best hospital in America two years ago and placed third last year.

Complicating the comparison of the Medicare and U.S. News rankings is the fact that the magazine has an advertising component with its report. Of the 4,500 hospitals analyzed by U.S. News, 152 were recognized nationally and 535 were singled out regionally. USNWR also considers Magnet status in the rankings of best hospitals.”.

"We are pleased that UAB Hospital continues to be recognized for providing world-class health care to the residents of our state, region and nation", said Health System CEO Will Ferniany.

Other Boston-area institutions earned spots in the top five for the 16 specialties evaluated.

Of the 4,658 USA hospitals evaluated this year, just under half met the ranking criteria, which involve being or affiliating with a medical school, having at least 200 beds set up and staffed or offering enough advanced technologies.

In acknowledging all of UK HealthCare's national rankings and achievements, one common factor is always first to be attributed to success - the people who work there.

The highest rankings attained by UW Hospital were in gynecology at 13 and urology at 16.

University of Iowa Health Care in February opened a new $360 million, 14-floor, stand-alone children's hospital - adding 134 pediatric beds and 507,000 square feet to the UI Hospitals and Clinics main campus.

But health policy experts have said the government star ratings are unfair to teaching hospitals like KU, which often treat sicker patients. "Our goal is not to compare each hospital to its past self, but rather to compare it to other contemporary hospitals".
