University hospital again ranks among nation’s best

The University of Minnesota Medical Center, ranks among the country’s top 50 hospitals in 11 specialties, according to the “Best Hospitals 2006” issue of U.S. News & World Report.

This record-breaking performance is up from 10 specialties in 2005 and 7 specialties in 2004.

“It’s terrific news for our patients, and it’s well-deserved,” says hospital president Gordon Alexander, M.D. “The fact that we continue to be recognized in more and more areas of expertise is a reflection of our talented staff and our clinical partners at the University of Minnesota, who bring the best in research to the bedside.”

The 11 specialties are cancer; digestive disorders; ear, nose, and throat; endocrinology; gynecology; heart/heart diseases; kidney diseases; neurology/neurosurgery; orthopaedics; respiratory disorders; and urology.

More than 5,000 hospitals were evaluated in the report, but only 176 were ranked in at least one of 16 specialties.
