MILWAUKEE, July 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center is among the top 50 hospitals in the nation in four different specialties, according to U.S. News & World Report's "2008 America's Best Hospitals" list to be released Monday.

U.S. News & World Report named Aurora St. Luke's 30th in digestive disorders, 45th in endocrinology, 34th in geriatrics and 50th in respiratory disorders.

"Being recognized by U.S. News is an honor and an affirmation of the terrific work our caregivers provide," said Aurora St. Luke's Chief Administrative Officer Mary O'Brien. "We are privileged to serve the people of southeast Wisconsin and our goal is to continue to give them high-quality care."

Out of 5,453 hospitals considered, only 170 medical centers scored high enough to earn the top one percent rankings, in 16 specialty areas, ranging from cancer to urology. Aurora St. Luke's received the most specialty rankings of any Wisconsin hospital. Rankings were based on each hospital's reputation, patient mortality and other care-related factors.

Dr. Ted Gronski, the medical director of the lung transplant program at Aurora St. Luke's, was delighted with the recognition for respiratory care.

"We use all the latest technology, but what sets us apart is that we're very service oriented," Dr. Gronski said. "It's a collaborative effort."

Physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and other staff meet regularly to discuss patients' treatment, Dr. Gronski said, which makes for seamless care and better outcomes.

Aurora St. Luke's was also recognized for its digestive disorders care. Dr. Michael Schmalz, Aurora St. Luke's gastroenterology section chief, said the hospital is outstanding in this specialty because it is quick to adopt new diagnostic and treatment technologies. Membe
