Six Loyola Specialties Nationally Ranked By US News

Six Loyola Specialties Nationally Ranked By US News

According to Mr. Mullen, in addition to this national honor, Mercy was recently ranked as one of the top 300 midsize employers in the United States by Forbes magazine.

Rankings by third-party organizations such as U.S. News are good fodder for hospital marketers looking to attract patients, but they can be subjective and misleading.

For the 23rd straight year, U.S. News ranked the Clinic the No. 1 hospital for cardiology and heart surgery. Mount Sinai was ranked No. 18 in the nation on the "Honor Roll" - a distinction awarded to centers that perform at the highest levels in three or more specialties. The rankings exclude children's hospitals and VA medical centers.

In a statement, Dean M. Harrison, president and CEO of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, attributed his system's success in the rankings to a mission that includes putting patients first and a "culture of excellence".

Only 152 hospitals nationwide out of about 4,500 U.S. News surveyed received rankings in at least one of the 16 specialties the publication measured. Central DuPage Hospital is nationally ranked in two specialties with one high performing specialty and eight high performing procedures/conditions.

The rankings, which analyzed more than 4,500 hospitals in 25 specialties, also recognized University of Utah Health Care Hospitals and Clinics, and Intermountain Medical Center with a lesser, un-numbered "high-performing" ranking in the areas of urology, ophthalmology and nephrology.

The recognition by The Joint Commission occurred the same day that a former cancer patient sued KU Hospital, alleging she was misdiagnosed with pancreatic cancer and the hospital covered it up. To be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients.

The Johns Hopkins Hospital earns another top national ranking. The research methods included evaluating risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety, quality of nursing care, and other indicators.

Michigan Medicine was followed in the state rankings by Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, which earned rankings in 9 adult specialty categories.

"It allows not only our patients but also our physicians and staff to be seamlessly in touch with the best medical knowledge, technology and expert care available in the world on a daily basis", he said.

U.S. News gave United Kingdom "high-performing" marks in gastroenterology, nephrology, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology. Hebl said the project is part of a continuing effort to establish the hospital as a regional health center.

Last year, Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin held those spots, but this year placed at No. 2 in the Milwaukee area and No. 3 in Wisconsin.
