Rush University Medical Center programs ranked among the nation's best in US News and World Report

Ten Rush University Medical Center programs are ranked among the best in the nation according to the July 17 issue of U. S. News & World Report magazine. The magazine lists the top hospitals across the country for 16 medical specialties as part of the magazine's annual "America's Best Hospitals" issue.

Just 176 out of 5,189 hospitals scored high enough this year to rank in even a single specialty, according to the magazine.

In three of the specialty areas, no other hospital in Illinois ranks higher than Rush. These include Orthopedics (#6 in the nation), Neurology and Neurosurgery (#12 in the nation), and Kidney Disease (#21 in the nation).

The rankings of other Rush programs are: Endocrinology, #21; Pulmonary (Respiratory Disorders), #23; Urology, #25; Heart and Heart Surgery, #29; Gastroenterology (Digestive Disorders), #29; Cancer, #35; and Gynecology, #40.

"Rush continues to do great work in its various programs, and these rankings are representative of the quality of care provided at Rush," said Dr. Larry J. Goodman, president and CEO, Rush University Medical Center. "Our academic medical center has earned its place among America's best."

According to U.S. News & World Report, the purpose of "America's Best Hospitals' is to "identify centers that take on and excel at tough procedures and conditions rare cancers, worsening heart failure, seemingly untreatable leg artery blockages. That is why most of the institutions ranked are referral centers, where the sickest patients are sent for advanced care. Such hospitals, follow, and often pioneer, new treatment guidelines."
