U.S. News & World Report began publishing hospital rankings in 1990 to identify the best medical centers in various specialties for the most hard patients - those whose illnesses pose unusual challenges because of underlying conditions, procedure difficulty or other medical issues that add risk.
The Tucson academic medical center was ranked 38th in the medical specialty of gynecology, 42nd in pulmonology, 46th in geriatrics and 48th in cancer out of approximately 4,500 hospitals surveyed across the nation. It has four high performing procedures/conditions: heart failure, colon cancer, COPD, and lung cancer surgery. This year, Mayo officials also celebrated out west as the Phoenix campus finished No. 20 in a report that examined more than 4,500 medical centers across the country.
"Our focus is on continually improving the care we provide", Spahlinger said in a news release.
Mayo spokeswoman Rhoda Madson said U.S. News actively solicits feedback from medical providers in order to "be transparent and provide information to consumers".
The Johns Hopkins Hospital has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as the top-ranked hospital in the country for rheumatology for the 2017 to 2018 year.
Dr. Denitza Blagev, director of Intermountain's Schmidt Chest Clinic and a pulmonologist at Intermountain Medical Center, was quick to share the credit.
Gomez credited the program's ability to rapidly and precisely identify patients for common illnesses such as pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as much rarer illnesses such as pulmonary hypertension.
But health policy experts have said the government star ratings are unfair to teaching hospitals like KU, which often treat sicker patients. It's the eighth straight year the hospital has been ranked as one of the best pediatric hospitals.
The hospital has also recently been responsible for developing an antibiotic-releasing polymer which may simplify the treatment of prosthetic joint infection, according to a recent press release. "I think all of that has actually enhanced our reputation".
The "America's Best Hospitals" issue is compiled using data collected annually on more than 5,000 US hospitals of varying sizes. Still, the move up is indicative of the Markey Cancer Center's continued emphasis on providing exemplary care as the state's only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated center. UCHealth's patients are 26% more likely to survive their illness, and they are receiving safer care compared to the national average. Both are flagship hospitals associated with university medical schools and part of large networks that include regional hospitals, medical practices and diagnostic labs across multiple counties.
Neither the U. or Intermountain were ranked "below average" in any applicable specialty. "Whether it's someone with a newly diagnosed cancer, or a premature baby, or a critically ill or injured child, or brother or mother or sister, you want to know that a place like this is ready to go when you need us".
There were 12 hospitals in Colorado this year that scored highly enough and met other eligibility criteria to be included in the U.S. News rankings.
