Stanford Hospital Achieves Higher Rank on U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll
U.S. News & World Report has once again selected Stanford Hospital for its “elite 20-hospital Honor Roll” which recognizes hospitals with “outstanding performance across multiple areas of care.”
Stanford Hospital rises in the ranking from 15th to 14th on the 2016-17 honor roll, which now takes into consideration both national ranking and specialty ratings, where Stanford’s exceptional performance was noted in several areas. “Out of the nearly 5,000 hospitals nationwide, only three percent earned a national ranking in any specialty in the U.S. News survey. This year, 12 Stanford Health Care specialty programs were ranked among the best,” says Stanford Health Care President and CEO David Entwistle. These include cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery and nephrology.
Looking ahead, Entwistle sees even more opportunity for growth of this kind of quality patient-centered care. He states, “As we extend access to Stanford health Care throughout the Bay Area, our goal is to provide every patient, in every encounter with innovative, coordinated care matched by outstanding service and patient experience.”
The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital also earned honor roll status for 2016-17. Ranking nationally in 10 specialties, it was one of only 11 hospitals chosen for an honor roll dedicated to children’s hospitals.
