Charleston hospitals were named among the best in SC

U.S. News & World Report on Monday released its list of 2017-18 Best Hospitals.

This U.S. News & World Report honor follows a recent Mayo Clinic report, Remarkable Moments of Sharing, which provides insight into what makes a top hospital and highlights Mayo's effect on the economy, health system and patients.

This year's U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals list ranks hospitals in 16 specialties: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology; orthopedics; pulmonology; psychiatry; rehabilitation; rheumatology; and urology.

"For almost three decades, we've strived to make hospital quality more transparent to healthcare consumers nationwide", said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News.

The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 28th year, are created to help inform and guide patients to hospitals that deliver outstanding care across a number of clinical specialties, procedures and medical conditions. All three also have specialty programs that received national rankings by U.S. News.

He also said that Doklam belonged to China and that it has "ample legal and historical proof" for the same. India however is sure that it is nothing more than a rhetoric and China will not risk a war.

Data used by U.S. News mostly came from the American Hospital Association Annual Survey Database, which measures advanced technology, patient volume, nursing intensity and the presence of a high-level trauma center, UW Health said in a release.

Florida Hospital Orlando and Orlando Regional Medical Center both ranked first in Orlando and fourth in Florida, improving their statewide placement from a year ago. "This sort of care is of a higher level than most patients need, so except in rare circumstances it's not necessary for patients to look beyond their region's Best Regional Hospitals".

The "Best Hospitals" rankings are considered a trusted resource for consumers and a benchmarking tool for the healthcare industry. Neither hospital's adult specialty programs rose to a high-enough level based on criteria set by U.S. News to be compared and ranked nationally. "Our faculty are known nationwide for their clinical expertise and innovative research and provide some of the best care in the country", said John Reilly, Jr., MD, Dean of the CU School of Medicine.

The annual Best Hospitals rankings, now in its 28 year, are created to help patients make informed decisions about where to receive care for life-threatening conditions or for common elective procedures.
