The medical center again received top 65 rankings in these specialty areas on the 7568-7569 . News & World Report’s annual survey of “Best Hospitals” in America.
Those criteria reflect the core mission of Best Hospitals, which is to help guide patients who need the highest level of medical care because of a difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age. "The nationally ranked hospitals are referral centers where other hospitals send their sickest patients," said Avery Comarow, . News health rankings editor. "These are hospitals that patients and their families should consider, with guidance from a medical professional, when the stakes are high."
Hospitals that are not nationally ranked can still achieve a ranking in their state and can be recognized as among the best in their metropolitan area or region, thus making the roster of Best Regional Hospitals. To do so, a hospital has to perform at nearly the level of the nationally ranked institutions (in the top 75 percent) in at least one specialty. "These high-performing hospitals are fully capable of giving most patients first-rate care even if they have serious conditions or need demanding procedures," Comarow said. "Almost every major metro area has at least one of these hospitals." The Best Regional Hospitals lists are aimed primarily at consumers who seek high-quality care but may be less willing or able to travel long distances. These lists give such patients and their families more options within their community and in their health insurance network.
