UI Hospitals and Clinics ranked No

U.S. News evaluates data on almost 5,000 hospitals in 16 adult specialties, nine adult procedures and conditions, and 10 pediatric specialties.

The U.S. News rankings are widely cited by health care providers and broadly accessed by patients shopping for a doctor - although the publication notes the highest-ranking hospitals might not be the best choice for a specific patient and should be viewed as a "starting point". "We know outcomes matter most, which is why U.S. News is committed to publishing as much data as possible on patient outcomes".

"Our specialty rankings focus on identifying hospitals that excel in caring for especially sick or challenging patients", he wrote in an email.

The best hospital in the state, according to the rankings, is University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, topped the national list, and no Georgia hospitals were on it. In the 16 specialty areas, only 146 hospitals (just over 3 percent) were ranked in at least one specialty.

"I don't think that they're the ultimate measure of quality", Cosgrove said of the hospital rankings.

As has been the pattern for U.S. News, the rankings tilted again toward academic medical centers, both in North Carolina and nationally.

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, a 761-bed facility that annually admits more than 35,000 patients for inpatient care, reports more than 14,000 employees, students and volunteers collaborate to "provide safe, quality health care". Under children's specialties, Penn State Children's Hospital ranked 39 for pediatric cardiology and heart surgery, 46 for pediatric orthopedics, 46 for neonatology and 50 for pediatric cancer.

This is the sixth year in a row UW Hospital and Clinics has been named the state's top hospital. Additionally, the health care system was designated high performing in eight common adult procedures and conditions: Aortic Valve Surgery, Heart Bypass Surgery, Heart Failure, Colon Cancer Surgery, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Hip Replacement, Knee Replacement, and Lung Cancer Surgery.

Two other Emory hospitals - Emory University Hospital (No. 1) and Emory University Hospital Midtown (tied for No. 11) - were ranked in the Georgia list. It was ranked within the Top 7 in 15 of 16 specialties, including No. 1 in six different areas - geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, GI and GI surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, and neurology and neurosurgery. Ranking in the other four specialties relies on hospital reputation, as determined by physician surveys.

Aspirus Wausau Hospital in Wausau was ranked No.4 in the state; St. Mary's Hospital in Madison was ranked No. 5; and Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center tied for No. 6 with Aurora Medical Center in Grafton.

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".
