Stanford, CA – July 21, 2015 - Stanford Health Care's renowned
Stanford Hospital has once again been ranked one of the nation's best
hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, earning Honor Roll
status and receiving national top tier rankings in 13 of 16 medical
specialties for 2015-16. The magazine also ranked Stanford Hospital as
the top hospital in California. The Honor Roll highlights 15 hospitals
out of nearly 5,000 nationwide for their expertise.
"We are extremely pleased to again see Stanford recognized by
U.S. News for delivering the highest levels of patient care
excellence," said Amir Dan Rubin, president & CEO, Stanford
Health Care. "This honor is a direct result of the hard work of
our talented and compassionate physicians, faculty, staff, leaders and
board members. At Stanford Health Care we seek to heal humanity
through science and compassion, one patient at a time."
For 2015-16, less than three percent of the approximately 5,000
hospitals analyzed by U.S. News earned national ranking in even one
specialty. Stanford was ranked among the nation's very best hospitals
in: cancer; cardiology & heart surgery; diabetes &
endocrinology; ear, nose & throat; gastroenterology & GI
surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology &
neurosurgery; orthopaedics; pulmonology; rheumatology; and urology.
The U.S. News Best Hospitals survey also ranks America's
children's hospitals and their programs. In June 2015, U.S. News
ranked five of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford specialty
programs among the top 15 in the nation, and two of those programs
were ranked best in the state.
"The latest U.S. News rankings confirm what our patients
already know—that the care offered by Stanford Medicine's highly
skilled and deeply compassionate faculty and trainees is among the
very best in the nation," said Lloyd Minor, MD, dean of the
Stanford University School of Medicine. "As Stanford leads the
biomedical revolution in precision health, we will continue to harness
cutting-edge science, provide exceptional patient care and train the
next generation of physicians on our quest to bring true health to our patients."
