One of only 20 hospitals in the nation to earn top honors for exceptional performance in specialized, complex patient care
STANFORD, CALIF. – Stanford Health Care's renowned Stanford Hospital has again been recognized as one of the nation's premier hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, earning a spot on its national Honor Roll. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals Honor Roll recognizes institutions that excel in treating patients with the most challenging, highly-complex medical needs.
"We are pleased that once again Stanford Hospital has received national recognition from U.S. News & World Report for delivering the highest quality to patients who entrust us with their care," said David Entwistle, President and CEO of Stanford Health Care. “As we extend access to Stanford Health Care throughout the Bay Area, our goal is to provide every patient, in every encounter with innovative, coordinated care matched by outstanding service and patient experience.”
Out of the nearly 5,000 hospitals nationwide, only three percent earned a national ranking in any specialty in the U.S. News survey. For 2016-17, Stanford Hospital achieved national recognition in 12 specialties including: cancer care; cardiology & heart surgery; diabetes & endocrinology; ear, nose & throat; gastroenterology & GI surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology & neurosurgery; orthopaedics; rheumatology; and urology.
"This year’s U.S. News rankings highlight the exceptional work of Stanford Medicine's talented faculty, residents, and fellows who are at the forefront of leading the biomedical revolution in precision health," said Lloyd Minor, MD, Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine. "Stanford Medicine will continue to open new realms of scientific discovery, provide exceptional patient-centered care, and train the next generation of physicians and scientists on our quest to bring proactive and personalized health to our patients."
The U.S. News Best Hospitals survey separately ranks America's top children’s hospitals. Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford also earned Honor Roll status for 2016-2017.
