  • U.S. News & World Report Ranks UVA as No. 1 Hospital in Virginia

The highest ranking hospital in the Midstate was Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, which ranked as the fourth best hospital in the state.

"For almost three decades, we've strived to make hospital quality more transparent to health-care consumers nationwide", said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News.

GW Hospital wasn't ranked in a U.S. News & World Report list of the 11 best hospitals in the D.C. area.

The Best Hospital rankings are created to help consumers determine which hospitals provide the best care for the most serious or complicated medical conditions and procedures. The top three hospitals on the 2017-18 list are identical to those on the 2016-17 list: Boston Children's Hospital, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

The organization's "honor roll" consists of the hospitals that scored highest in a number of specialty rankings and how "high performing" they were in nine procedures and conditions. This is the seventh time KU hospital's geriatrics care have made the list.

In its 28th annual Best Hospitals rankings, the publication compared more than 4,500 medical centers across the nation in 25 procedures, specialties and conditions.

Claiming second statewide was University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian Shadyside, which ranked nationally in 14 specialties and was recognized as high-performing in eight procedures or conditions.

"Keck Medicine of USC is delighted to maintain our rankings among the best hospitals locally, regionally and nationally", said Thomas E. Jackiewicz, CEO of Keck Medicine of USC. "We're really pleased that we can have a major presence in this city", he said.

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

In addition to quality measures, U.S. News also rates hospitals based on reputation, which is one of the biggest criticisms of the report.

The highest national rankings for Wake Forest Baptist were 27th in cancer and nephrology, along with 33rd in geriatrics and gynecology, 34th in ear, nose and throat, and 37th in neurology and neurosurgery. The intent is to give patients information to help them find the best care across a range of specialties, according to Ben Harder, U.S. News chief of health analysis. It also has regional rankings by state.
