UW Hospital and Clinics Among Nation's Best
MADISON - University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics ranked in the top one percent of U.S. hospitals in five medical specialties, according to the 2007 edition of U.S. News and World Report's America’s Best Hospitals 2007 guide.
The U.S. News guide ranks hospital care in 16 specialties among more than 5,400 U.S. hospitals. UW Hospital is ranked among the nation’s top 50 hospitals in the following categories:
"This ranking confirms our mission to provide the best possible care and service to our patients," said UW Hospital and Clinics president and CEO Donna Sollenberger. "To be listed among the nation’s elite hospitals at a time when we are preparing to open the new American Family Children’s Hospital is an added honor."
Of the more than 5,400 U.S. hospitals U.S. News analyzed, only 173 scored high enough to be ranked in any specialty. Five categories - pediatrics, psychiatry, ophthalmology, rheumatology and rehabilitation - are ranked based on a "reputational" score alone.
The other 11 categories are assessed based on reputation and a mix of other data. The magazine listed the top 50 hospitals in 11 of the 16 categories and various numbers of hospitals in the categories ranked only by reputation.
UW Hospital and Clinics has been ranked every year since 1993. The hospital has also received a number of national safety and quality recognition honors in the last several years. Learn more about our National Recognition and Awards
