Rush Ranked Among Top Hospitals in Seven Specialties by U.S. News & World Report

Rush University Medical Center once again has been named one of the nation’s top hospitals, according to the new issue of U.S. News & World Report. Rush is ranked in seven of 16 categories included in the magazine’s 2014-15 “America’s Best Hospitals” issue, which became available online on July 15, and is one of the two top-ranked hospitals in Illinois overall.

Rush remains among a small group of hospitals that rank highly in multiple specialties. Only 144 of the approximately 5,000 hospitals in the United States — approximately 3 percent — scored high enough this year to rank in even one specialty nationally by U.S. News.

Rush’s orthopedics program was ranked No. 6 nationwide, making it the highest ranked orthopedics program in Illinois. Rush’s other ranked programs were geriatrics (No. 17); neurology and neurosurgery (No. 17); nephrology (No. 31); urology (No. 43); cardiology and heart surgery (No. 46); and cancer (No. 48).

U.S. News also noted that the following Rush specialty services are “high-performing”: diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology; gynecology; and pulmonary.

“Rush’s strong showing in these rankings demonstrates that we provide outstanding care across a wide range of clinical specialties,” says Larry J. Goodman, MD, Rush CEO. “We are proud to be recognized as one of the very best hospitals in Illinois and among an elite group of health care providers nationwide.”
