UW Hospital and Clinics Among Becker's "100 Great Hospitals" in America
Madison, Wisconsin - UW Hospital and Clinics is one of the "100 Great Hospitals in America," says Becker's Hospital Review in the 2015 edition of this annual ranking.
Becker's considered more than 600 hospitals in creating this year's list. The Becker's editorial team researched hospitals' medical and scientific contributions, clinical programs, population health initiatives and capital investments and also took a look at industry rankings, awards and accreditations.
UW Hospital and Clinics was recognized as a Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality for the second year in a row in 2014 and also received recognition from the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care as one of 12 hospitals in the country to exemplify patient-centeredness by allowing family and friends to have 24-hour access to patients' bedsides.
UW Hospital and Clinics is one of only four Wisconsin hospitals on the Becker's list; the others are Froedtert Hospital and Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center in Milwaukee and Aspirus Wausau Hospital in Wausau.
This is the fifth year that Becker's has created the "100 Great Hospitals" list. UW Hospital and Clinics was also on the list in 2014.
