  • National Jewish Health Ranked Nation's #1 Respiratory Hospital

U.S. News & World Report analyzes data for 4,500 medical centers to determine the rankings.

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.

KU Hospital was given three stars in those rankings, while St. Luke's got four and Shawnee Mission Medical Center was the only hospital in the metro area to get five.

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.

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

"It allows not only our patients but also our physicians and staff to be seamlessly in touch with the best medical knowledge, technology and expert care available in the world on a daily basis", he said. Hebl said the project is part of a continuing effort to establish the hospital as a regional health center. The University of Maryland Medical Center was ranked the state's second-best hospital. The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago was named the nation's best hospital for rehabilitation.

Among hospitals in Iowa, UI Health Care again earned the top spot, according to the 2017-18 U.S. News report.




Children's Hospital programs ranked this year include: Cancer; Cardiology and Heart Surgery; Diabetes and Endocrinology; Gastroenterology; Nephrology; Neonatology; Neurology and Neurosurgery; Orthopaedics; Pulmonology; and Urology. The publication upped the amount of Medicare data it uses to produce the rankings from the 3 years it used previously to 5 years of data this year, alongside increased emphasis on the volume of patients hospitals see.

The top hospital on the list was Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, followed by Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco.

A drop in rankings does not necessarily mean a hospital is not as good as it once was, Harder said. UF Health Jacksonville and Baptist Medical Center Beaches are tied for fourth in Northeast Florida and 23rd in the state.

Earlier this year, University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers earned Magnet status designation.

St. Augustine's Flagler Hospital, which tied for 16th in the state, is the third ranked hospital in Northeast Florida.

Cancer care was included in the top 50 for the first time - although it has consistently been designated as High Performing for many years.
