UNC Health Care
Overall, eleven specialties at UNC Hospitals were recognized as nationally ranked or high performing by U.S. News & World Report in its annual “America’s Best Hospitals” issue.
Congratulations to our three nationally ranked specialties at UNC Hospitals! Three UNC Health Care specialties were ranked in top 50 of the 2012 U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” issue: Gynecology (#34), Ear, Nose & Throat (#42) and Cancer (#43).
Additionally, the following specialty areas at UNC Hospitals were designated by U.S. News as “high performing”, representing the top 25 percent of hospitals in their specialty nationally: Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Geriatrics, Nephrology, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Pulmonology and Urology.
This is the 20th year in a row that multiple specialties at UNC Hospitals have been included in U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals list. Only 3 percent of hospitals in the United States meet the U.S. News Best Hospitals criteria.
The U.S. News rankings are just one measure of success. UNC’s most recent awards and honors can be viewed here.
