best-hospitalsWe are pleased to announce that the Department of Medicine continues to receive national recognition for our superior quality care, according to the 2011 US News & World Report "America's Best Hospitals" rankings.

University Hospitals Case Medical Center is now ranked among America's 50 best hospitals in 11 of 12 methodology-ranked specialties. This is a significant increase over the seven specialty rankings we received in 2010.

The Department of Medicine clinical programs that rank among America's 50 best include ::
  • Cancer [#36]
  • Diabetes & Endocrinology [#39]
  • Gastroenterology [#25]
  • Geriatrics [#23]
  • Nephrology [#47]
  • Pulmonology [#33]

These rankings are based on a combination of scores including reputation, mortality rate, patient safety, and other care-related factors such as nursing and patient services. This year only 140 hospitals - just three percent of the nation's 4,800 eligible hospitals - achieved a ranking in any of the specialty categories.

In addition, University Hospitals Case Medical Center was recognized as a high-performing hospital in the Cleveland metro area for Cardiac & Heart Surgery.

We are very proud of our consistent recognition for our top-ranked medical sub-specialties. Thank you for your ongoing commitment and dedication to the Department of Medicine, University Hospitals and to the patients and families we serve and congratulations to everyone for accomplishing these impressive achievements.
