U.S. News Media Group Releases 19th Edition of America's Best Hospitals
Date:7/11/2008

2008 Rankings Include 170 Hospitals and Medical Centers in 16 Specialties,

19 Hospitals Included in "Honor Roll"

WASHINGTON, July 11 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. News Media Group today announced the 2008 publication of America's Best Hospitals, accessible today online at http://www.usnews.com/besthospitals and on sale at newsstands Monday, July 14.

Authoritative and influential, the 2008 America's Best Hospitals guide ranks 170 medical centers nationwide in 16 specialties -- with full data available online for another 1,500 that are unranked. In addition, the Honor Roll singles out the "best of the best."

The 16 ranked specialties are: cancer; gastroenterology; ear, nose, and throat; endocrinology; geriatric care; gynecology; heart and heart surgery; kidney disease; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology; orthopedics; psychiatry; rehabilitation; respiratory disorders; rheumatology; and urology.

"The America's Best Hospitals rankings provide readers with trusted material during some of life's most concerning times -- hospitalization," said Brian Kelly, editor of U.S.News & World Report. "Our rankings highlight the internal culture of excellence embraced by caregivers in the great hospitals throughout the U.S."

"Talent and money alone don't put hospitals in the rankings," agreed Best Hospitals editor Avery Comarow. "The truly best hospitals are never satisfied," he said. "Of course they have high medical standards, but the emphasis is not only on doing well, but always doing better -- squeezing another few percentage points out of the infection rate, improving the quality of life of elderly patients besides helping more of them survive."

Of the 170 medical centers ranked in the 2008 America's Best Hospitals, 19 earned Honor Roll status, demonstrating excellence and breadth of expertise by ranking at or near the top in at least six specialties.
