University of Minnesota hospitals rank among nation's best

The new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital was ranked one of the nation's top 50 children's hospitals in eight medical specialties.

University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview and University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital are again among an elite group of hospitals named the nation’s best by U.S. News & World Report.

The July 27 issue of the publication ranked University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview among the nation’s top 50 hospitals in six medical specialties — kidney disorders; pulmonology; gastroenterology; cancer; ear, nose, and throat; and orthopaedics.

In August the magazine ranked University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital among the nation’s top 50 children’s hospitals in eight medical specialties — an all-time high for the hospital.

This marks the fourth consecutive year that the hospital’s cancer program has been ranked among the country’s best and the third consecutive year its kidney care program made the list. The other specialties that ranked in the top 50 are diabetes and endocrinology, urology, cardiology and heart surgery, neonatology, gastroenterology, and pulmonology.

The annual rankings are based in part on reputation, death rate, and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services. The full report is at health.usnews.com/best-hospitals/rankings.
