UW Hospital Among Becker Hospital Review's "100 Great Hospitals in America"
Madison, Wisconsin - University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics is one of the "100 Great Hospitals in America," says Becker's Hospital Review in the 2014 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 re-designated a Magnet hospital this year for nursing excellence, and has also appeared on multiple lists of high-quality hospitals.
UW Hospital and Clinics is one of only two Wisconsin hospitals on the Becker's list; the other is Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center in Milwaukee.
This is the fourth year that Becker's has created the "100 Great Hospitals" list. UW Hospital and Clinics was on the list in 2012.
