Central DuPage Hospital's Orthopedics Ranks in U.S. News Media Group's 2008 Edition of America's Best Hospitals for the Second Consecutive Year
Date:7/11/2008

WINFIELD, Ill., July 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) of Winfield, Ill. has been ranked #47 in Orthopedics in U.S. News' 2008 publication of America's Best Hospitals, accessible today online at http://www.usnews.com/besthospitals and on sale at newsstands Monday, July 14.

Out of the 5,453 hospitals reviewed, only 170 medical centers nationwide ranked high enough by the 2008 America's Best Hospitals standards to be listed in one or more of the 16 specialties.

"Talent and money alone don't put hospitals in the rankings," says 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."

Our patients benefit from fine surgeons, excellent nurses and staff, and, our ongoing commitment to state-of-the-art technology," says Luke McGuinness, Chief Executive Officer of CDH. "Investments in new programs and expanded capacity are rooted in our desire to meet the needs of our patients and physicians alike. It is always an honor to be recognized and to know these efforts are well received."
