On Tuesday (July 15), U.S. News & World Report issued its latest annual rankings of the best hospitals in the United States, and the publication once again scored the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) as one of the finest providers of care for adult patients across a broad range of medical specialties. An article published the same day to the UMHS website states that in June, U.S. News & World Report rated U-M’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital a top facility in all of the 10 pediatric specialties that it surveys.
In 15 of the 16 adult specialty categories, UMHS achieved either a top 50 ranking or “high performing” status, with only Psychiatry failing to make the grade. Of the eight specialty areas that made the top 50 in the country, seven earned “Best in Michigan” honors. Ophthalmology was U-M’s highest rated specialty at number 11, while Rheumatology and Urology each landed a national ranking of number 14, and Ear, Nose & Throat came in at number 16. Among the adult specialty areas listed as “high performing” are Diabetes & Endocrinology, Gastroenterology and Rehabilitation.
The UMHS article contains a link to a page on its website that breaks out in detail the U.S. News & World Report rankings for adult and pediatric care as they relate to U-M’s health system. See the full rankings for the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2014-15 and the U.S. News Best Children's Hospitals 2014-15.
