UW Hospital and Clinics named Top Hospital in Wisconsin

MADISON (WKOW) -- A big accomplishment and accolade for University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. It's been named the top hospital in Wisconsin by the US News & World Report.
This marks the first-ever ranking of hospitals by state. The magazine named UW Hospital and Clinics the top hospital in Wisconsin, and among the nation's top 50 hospitals in seven medical specialties.
The rankings are based on an analysis of nearly 5,000 US hospitals. They're included in the 2012-2013 edition of the magazine's America's Best Hospitals guide. Hospitals are ranked in 16 specialties to guide patients who need an especially high level of care. UW Hospital and Clinics is nationally ranked in the following specialties: Nephrology (24); Geriatrics (29); Pulmonology (33); Ear, Nose and Throat (38); Neurology and Neurosurgery (40); Cancer (41); and Gynecology (44).
Only 150 hospitals make the US News national rankings in at least one category. The magazine also named UW a "high-performing hospital" in cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; gastroenterology; orthopedics; and urology. High-performing hospitals must be in the top 25 percent within a given specialty.
Other notable hospitals in the report include Meriter Hospital in Madison. Meriter ranked number nine on the list of top hospitals in Wisconsin. In addition, St. Mary's Hospital in Madison ranked number 11.
