University of Washington Medical Center, part of the UW Medicine health system, today earned U.S. News & World Report's No. 1 hospital ranking in Washington state and in the Seattle metropolitan area. It was ranked among the best throughout the United States in gynecology, at No. 33 in the list, and urology, No. 16.

U.S. News compared more 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions.

Florida Hospital Orlando ranked fifth in the state. It rated high performing for adult procedures and conditions in abdominal aortic aneurysm fix, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, colon cancer surgery, heart bypass surgery, heart failure, and lung cancer surgery.

Overlook Medical Center was also once again highly-rated in New Jersey, at 8, for the second consecutive year, as well as again being recognized as a high-performing hospital in Neurology & Neurosurgery - placing it among the top 10 percent of hospitals in the country for that specialty.

"Rankings certainly aren't why health care providers do what they do every day, but I would say that they provide further validation of how hard we are working to put patients and their families first", MUSC's CEO Patrick Cawley said in a news release.

"The Best Hospitals procedures and conditions ratings - originally called Best Hospitals for Common Care - evaluate nearly every hospital in the USA that admits patients in any of nine common procedures and conditions: colon cancer surgery, lung cancer surgery, heart bypass surgery, aortic valve surgery, abdominal aortic aneurysm fix, hip replacement, knee replacement, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD", according to a US News & World Report spokesperson.

As Colorado's only adult academic medical center, University of Colorado Hospital provides clinical trials and innovative treatments through a strong partnership with the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. From that list, the 20 hospitals with the highest rankings are recognized on an overall national list called the Honor Roll. Only three Milwaukee area hospitals were ranked.

Neither Norton nor Jewish earned a national ranking in any specialty area, but Norton received high-performing for six procedures/conditions and Jewish got that distinction in three areas. The rankings are based largely on risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and nursing quality. Founded in 1933, U.S. News is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

U.S. News ranked hospitals in 16 specialized categories.

UC Davis was the only Sacramento-area hospital to be ranked among the top 50 USA hospitals when it comes to complex specialty care.
