U-M Health’s adult hospitals were ranked best in Michigan and 17th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” rankings for 2022-2023. This prestigious honor measures excellence in patient care.

U-M Health was also given the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll distinction for the seventh consecutive year. This makes the organization one of only a few U.S. hospitals, and the only one in Michigan, that delivers the highest quality of care across a variety of specialties, as well as varying procedures and conditions.

The organization had three medical specialties ranked in the nation’s top 10, five medical specialties ranked in the nation’s top 20 and nine medical specialties ranked as the top program in the state.

“Every day, our teams come together during one of health care’s most challenging times for a common purpose — providing exceptional care for our patients,” said Nancy May, D.N.P, RN, AMB-BC, NEA-BC, FAAN, chief nurse executive at U-M Health. “This national honor is a reminder of the impact we make each day.”

Three Michigan Medicine specialty areas ranked in the top 10 in the country:

  • Urology (#9)
  • Ear, Nose & Throat (#9)
  • Ophthalmology (#8)

Michigan Medicine also received national rankings in 10 other specialties:

  • Cancer (#40)
  • Cardiology & Heart Surgery (#26)
  • Diabetes & Endocrinology (#37)
  • Gastroenterology & GI Surgery (#25)
  • Geriatrics (#21)
  • Obstetrics & Gynecology (#21)
  • Neurology & Neurosurgery (#20)
  • Orthopedics (#18)
  • Pulmonology (#22)
  • Rehabilitation (#33)

Michigan Medicine also was recognized as high performing in Rheumatology.

In addition, U-M Health was evaluated as “High Performing” in 19 procedures and conditions evaluated by U.S. News & World Report

“To be recognized as a national leader in patient safety and experience is something I, and the rest of our community, should take much pride in,” said David Miller, M.D., M.P.H., president of U-M Health and executive vice dean for clinical affairs for the U-M Medical School. “Together, we achieve our high standards of quality and safety despite dealing with all the obstacles created by the pandemic.”

University of Michigan Health-West is also recognized as a High Performing hospital in several categories: COPD, Stroke, Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement. 

The U.S. News & World Report (USNWR) “Best Hospitals” methodologies in most areas of care are based on a combination of reputation surveys and objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.

Last month, Michigan Medicine also received USNWR recognition for C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, which has the most ranked specialties of any children’s hospital in the state. In addition to earning the No.1 ranking in Michigan, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital’s pediatric cardiology and heart surgery program places in the national top 10.

“It’s because of our employees’ commitment to our core values of caring, integrity, innovation, inclusion and teamwork that our health system can achieve such an honorable ranking year after year,” said Marschall S. Runge, M.D., Ph.D. executive vice president for medical affairs at the University of Michigan, chief executive officer of Michigan Medicine and dean of the U-M Medical School. “I am so grateful for the teams that make Michigan Medicine a name people can trust.”
