Third Consecutive Year CDH on Well-Known List

WASHINGTON, July 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) ranks 35th in Orthopaedics in U.S. News's 2009-10 publication of America's Best Hospitals, accessible online at www.usnews.com/besthospitals and on sale at newsstands Tuesday, July 21.

Now in its 20th year, the multi-platform 2009-10 America's Best Hospitals guide is the most extensive hospital ranking to-date. It includes rankings of 174 medical centers nationwide in 16 specialties--with full data available online for another 1,500 unranked hospitals. In addition, the Best Hospitals "Honor Roll" highlights 21 medical centers that were ranked at or near the top in at least six specialties.

The 16 ranked specialties are cancer; diabetes & endocrine disorders; digestive disorders; ear, nose, and throat; geriatric care; gynecology; heart and heart surgery; kidney disorders; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology; orthopedics; psychiatry; rehabilitation; respiratory disorders; rheumatology and urology.

"I have watched our orthopaedic services continue to excel at CDH," says CEO Luke McGuinness. "To be listed to U.S. News & World Report for the third consecutive year is a testament to the caliber of the physicians choosing to practice here and to the entire hospital - I'm proud of everyone for their dedication and hard work."

"When the stakes are high, you want the best care you can get for someone close to you," said Avery Comarow, health rankings editor at U.S. News & World Report. "These are hospitals that are used to getting the sickest patients."

Methodology: The rankings in 12 of the 16 specialties -- all but ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation and rheumatology -- are predominantly driven by hard data. There are four components: reputation, death rate, patient safety (new this year) and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services. In these 12 specialties, hospitals have to pass through several gates to be ranked and considered a Best Hospital. Relevant considerations include the hospital size and breadth of service, procedure volumes as well as patient outcomes and safety data.
