UTHSC physicians celebrate Top 50 ranking in 5 categories
The Health Science Center provides all the physicians to staff University Health System facilities, which collectively were recognized among America’s Best Hospitals in the newsmagazine. The Health System has been listed in the rankings every year since 2000.
This year, Health Science Center faculty earned Top 50 honors in five medical/surgical specialties: endocrinology, including diabetes care, a first-time ranking; heart and heart surgery, also for the first time; kidney disease, which was listed in 2003; orthopaedics, listed in 2003; and another repeat area, respiratory disorders.
"The standards for ranking in Best Hospitals are rigorous," U.S. News reported. "Of all 6,012 U.S. medical centers, only 177, or fewer than 1 in 30, were of high-enough quality to be ranked in even a single specialty this year."
