How Much Do Hospital Rankings Matter?

U.S. News evaluated 4,658 hospitals across the country for this survey and fewer than half performed well enough to have even a single specialty program ranked.

"For more than 150 years, the people of our community have trusted University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and our health care experts to provide superior and compassionate care". "We know outcomes matter most, which is why U.S. News is committed to publishing as much data as possible on patient outcomes".

Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital ranked eighth statewide, recognized as high-performing in four procedures or conditions.

U.S. News also ranked hospitals by each state, and Hopkins came in first in the comparison of Maryland hospitals. Since 2011, U.S. News has ranked National Jewish Health together with its academic affiliate the University of Colorado Hospital.

Usher Accuser Tweeted That She Needed Money One Week Before Press Conference
Bloom and Sharpton both appeared at the press conference, which took place at the New York Hilton in Midtown Manhattan. She is now urging the crooner to publicly deny the allegations and get the tested to prove his innocence.

In addition to quality measures, U.S. News also rates hospitals based on reputation, which is one of the biggest criticisms of the report. The result is thousands of data points on hospitals that excel at treating the most challenging cases, those that do best in more routine procedures, like knee replacements, and those that provide top local care. Under children's specialties, Penn State Children's Hospital ranked 39 for pediatric cardiology and heart surgery, 46 for pediatric orthopedics, 46 for neonatology and 50 for pediatric cancer.

Two Pittsburgh hospitals are being recognized as among the best in America. "We are honored once again to be ranked the No. 2 rehabilitation hospital in the United States", said Carl Josehart, Senior Vice President and CEO, Post-Acute Care Services at Memorial Hermann.

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. Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood ranked third.

The rankings take both the specialty rankings and the procedure condition ratings into account.

Rain chances linger for Friday
Tuesday will have another lovely day with partly cloudy skies, and temperatures in the lower 90s. High temperatures will range from the low to mid-80s during that period, the weather says.

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.

"A change in performance over time doesn't necessarily reflect a change in a hospital's quality of care", he said.

St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor Hospital earned the distinction of the No. 7 ranked in-state hospital, while ranking nationally at No. 47 in the ears, nose and throat specialty category.

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