U-M again ranked in honor roll of top hospitals

The U-M Hospitals and Health Centers (UMHHC) is listed among the best hospitals in the nation and once again is the only hospital in Michigan to make the honor roll of America's Best Hospitals in the annual U.S. News & World Report rankings.

U-M was ranked 12th in the country on the magazine's honor roll of the 14 best hospitals, a list that includes the upper echelon of the 176 medical centers in this year's edition of America's Best Hospitals.

"I am very pleased with the recognition that U-M remains one of the best hospitals in the country. I am fortunate to see examples of our quality every day as I witness the fine work and dedication of our faculty and staff," says Doug Strong, director and chief executive officer of UMHHC.

U-M also achieved a ranking in all 16 of the specialty areas included in the rankings, including: cancer, 18; digestive disorders, 11; ear, nose, & throat, 5; gynecology, 21; heart & heart surgery, 22; hormonal disorders, 14; kidney disease, 13; neurology & neurosurgery, 15; ophthalmology, 17; orthopedics, 16; pediatrics, 26; psychiatry, 26; rehabilitation, 11; respiratory disorders, 15; rheumatology, 14; urology, 15.

U.S. News & World Report's method for determining the America's Best Hospitals rankings is made up of three equal parts: reputation, death rate, and a mix of care-related factors such as nursing and patient services.
