U.S.News & World Report Again Ranks Jefferson University Hospital as Philadelphia's Best for Cardiology/Cardiothoracic Surgery, Orthopaedics, Rehabilitation
U.S.News & World Report has once again cited Thomas Jefferson University Hospital as the best hospital in Philadelphia for cardiology/cardiothoracic surgery, orthopaedics, and rehabilitation.
In its study this year of the nation's best hospitals, U.S.News & World Report also concluded that Jefferson University Hospital was among the best in the nation in the areas of digestive disorders (gastroenterology), geriatrics, gynecology, otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and urology.
The magazine also ranked the hospital as one of the best in the nation for its programs in neurology and neurosurgery, which are based at Wills Eye Hospital. Wills, which also serves as the hospital's department of ophthalmology, again ranked third in the nation and first in Philadelphia for ophthalmology.
Thomas J. Lewis, hospital President and CEO, said the hospital's recognition by U.S.News &World Report is well earned.
"We are very proud of the advanced treatment and superior care we offer patients, and I'm glad to see that U.S.News & World Report agrees," Mr. Lewis said.
U.S.News & World Report has consistently ranked many of Jefferson University Hospital's services as among the best in the nation. The magazine assessed care for 16 specialties at 188 hospitals nationwide to determine rankings.
