UPMC Presby, Children's Hospital Ranked Among Best In Nation

U.S. News & World Report Ranks UVA as No. 1 Hospital in Virginia

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center took third, followed by Fairview Hospital in fourth. Both were in a three-way tie for No. 6 in the Seattle metropolitan area, and in a three-way tie for No. 8 in Washington state. Emory St. Joseph's ranked high performing in two specialties: gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery.

MGH also earned the #5 spot for Cardiology & Heart Surgery. Also, according to U.S. News calculations of data, they received higher-than-average ratings for common hospital procedures like hip and heart valve surgeries. The results are from an independent, nationwide evaluation of more than 4,500 facilities.

The ranking factors in hospital performance in 16 specialty areas as well as procedures offered. The rankings remain focused on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient safety and quality of nursing, but the methodology expanded for the 2017-18 review.

University of Michigan Health System President David Spahlinger said Michigan Medicine's commitment to improving outcomes and patient care likely led to the improved rankings.

Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Massachusetts General and UCSF Medical Center rounded out the Top 5.

When it comes to common adult procedures and conditions rated by U.S. News, Ohio State is recognized as high performing in abdominal aortic aneurysm fix, aortic valve surgery, heart bypass surgery, heart failure, colon cancer surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)and lung cancer surgery.

New U.S. News rankings for children's hospitals debuted in June, in which the university also lost ground.

Florida Hospital Orlando and Orlando Regional Medical Center both ranked first in Orlando and fourth in Florida, improving their statewide placement from past year.

About UW Medicine UW Medicine is one of the top-rated academic medical systems in the world. "It is rewarding for our physicians, nurses and support staff, who every day work together with skill and passion to provide the best care for children and adolescents with the most complex medical conditions".

The measure is an improvement from a year ago, when CU ranked 20th in the country, and it marks the highest a Colorado hospital has ever scored in the overall rankings.

Shawnee resident Wendy Ann Noon Berner alleged she only learned of the misdiagnosis when a former pathology chief at KU Hospital, Lowell Tilzer, filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the hospital past year.
