Michigan Medicine makes big jump in US News national hospital rankings

3 Charleston hospitals were named among the best in South Carolina

The U.S. News & World Report is just one group among many that evaluate hospitals.

The specialty rankings and data are produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

By comparison, Medicare puts its patient-care emphasis on where the patient receives his or her primary treatment, and not where the patient was first admitted for care, as RTI and U.S. News determines. "The top 20 hospitals that were highlighted on this year's Honor Roll have delivered outstanding care and offer deep expertise spanning multiple specialties".

This year's U.S. News & World Report rankings cover almost every hospital in every community nationwide.

Since 2016, UK HealthCare has gone from one specialty top-50 ranking - Geriatrics, which moved up two spots from #45 to #43 - to having four major adult specialties nationally ranked.

Eight UAB programs moved up in the rankings, according to UAB.

As has been the pattern for U.S. News, the rankings tilted again toward academic medical centers, both in North Carolina and nationally. The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago was named the nation's best hospital for rehabilitation.

Cleveland Clinic finished at the second spot in this year's rankings, with Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore ranked third. Only 6 percent of USA hospitals receive this coveted honor, given to organizations that meet rigorous standards for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota topped the list. Nationally ranked specialties are: cancer (18th nationally); cardiology and heart surgery (39th); gastroenterology and GI surgery (7th); geriatrics (26th); neurology and neurosurgery (34th); ear, nose and throat (50th); and pulmonology (17th).

The two hospitals also received good ratings in all nine common procedures performed in hospitals, for which overall quality of inpatient care was among the factors taken into account.

“It is an honor to be ranked among the best, ” said Jeffrey Desmond, M.D., chief medical officer of Michigan Medicine.

Florida Hospital Orlando and Orlando Regional Medical Center improved their statewide rankings, rising to and sharing the fourth place.

KU Hospital ranked first in the metro area and first in the state of Kansas, while St. Luke's ranked second in the metro and second in Missouri to Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis.

For the first time in nearly a quarter of a century, Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston has dropped out of an important ranking.
