2 hospital by US News for the second consecutive year

The highest ranking hospital in the Midstate was Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, which ranked as the fourth best hospital in the state.

Most of the procedures and conditions at Carlisle Regional Medical Center were rated as average, except for abdominal aortic aneurysm and fix and colon cancer surgery, which were both rated by U.S. News & World Report as "below average".

Last month, U.S. News & World Report ranked UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital among America's Best Children's Hospitals in 9 pediatric specialties, including #7 in Neonatology.

UW Medical Center received top-20 national rankings in three specialties.

Earlier this summer, U.S. News ranked Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago the top children's hospital in IL and the 7th best children's hospital in the country.

Becoming the second largest employer in OH, teaching Hospital Cleveland Clinic has become the second-best hospital in the United States, ranked in 14 adult specialties and nine paediatric specialties. 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.




More than 4,500 hospitals are evaluated for the rankings, with only 146 ultimately earning at least one ranking.

The U.'s Ears, Nose & Throat Clinic achieved the highest ranking of any specialty in the state, coming in at No. 18 after being unranked previous year.

It's the sixth consecutive year that U.S. News has listed KU Hospital as the best hospital in the state and the 11 straight year the hospital has shown up in its Top 50 rankings of specialties. To be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients. The media company has been publishing hospital rankings since 1990, compiling them through a combination of physician surveys and data.

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

Aurora St. Luke's earned spots in the national Top 50 for five specialties - gynecology (No. 30), cardiology and heart surgery (No. 37), geriatrics (No. 41), gastroenterology and GI surgery (No. 46) and pulmonology (No. 50). Rankings are based on several criteria, including clinical outcomes, patient safety and reputation.

The U.S. News rankings follow a report last month that gave Duke a mix of excellent and passing grades in most areas - like breast removal, coronary bypass and knee replacement surgery - but a failing grade in hip surgeries.
