Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Ranks As Country's 7th Best Hospital

The University of Maryland Medical Center was ranked the state's second-best hospital.

U.S. News is just one of many organizations producing reports meant to hold health care organizations accountable and help consumers make wise choices.

University of Tennessee Medical Center is earning accolades from U.S. News & World Report.

The medical center also performed well in a number of specialty rankings, securing a Top 50 placement in five specialties. That marks a change from a year ago, when Utah Valley Regional Medical Center - now Utah Valley Hospital - and Dixie Regional Medical Center were also ranked. While more than 1,200 were rated high performing in at least one procedure or condition, only 48 were high performing in all nine procedures and conditions.

Michigan Medicine appeared in the top 10 nationally in geriatrics (No. 7), urology (No. 7) and neurology and neurosurgery (No. 8), while the UM W.K. Kellogg Eye Center ranked No. 8 in ophthalmology.

Both hospitals received accolades for speciality care.

Hershey Medical Center in Dauphin County ranked fourth statewide, making the national ranking in two adult specialties and four children's specialties, and recognized as high-performing in eight procedures or conditions.

The University of Colorado Hospital is the 15th-best hospital in the country, according to this year's edition of the prestigious U.S. News & World Report rankings. "This sort of care is of a higher level than most patients need, so except in rare circumstances it's not necessary for patients to look beyond their region's Best Regional Hospitals". "By providing the most comprehensive data available, we hope to give patients the information they need to find the best care across a range of specialties".

No other Northeast Florida hospital is listed in the rankings.

"We view the facility as a net positive for the strength of our programs", he said.

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.

In addition to quality measures, U.S. News also rates hospitals based on reputation, which is one of the biggest criticisms of the report.

U.S. News gave United Kingdom "high-performing" marks in gastroenterology, nephrology, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

United Kingdom also cracked the top 50 national ranking for care in four areas: 37th in diabetes and endocrinology, 43rd in geriatrics, 44th in neurology and neurosurgery, and 50th in cancer. The rankings also take into account a survey of about 16,000 doctors.
