U.S. News & World Report names Stanford Hospital one of best in the nation

US News & World Report has named Stanford Hospital & Clinics to the Honor Roll of top hospitals in its annual "Best Hospitals" issue. According to the hospital release:

The news magazine evaluated 4,825 U.S. hospitals in 16 medical specialties, such as cardiology and neurosurgery, for its 2011-12 "best hospitals" survey. Only 140 hospitals performed well enough to rank in even one specialty. Stanford Hospital & Clinics was No. 17 on the magazine's honor roll, which recognizes hospitals that rank at or near the top in at least six specialties, demonstrating a breadth of excellence.

Overall, the hospital ranked number one among all facilities in the San Jose metropolitan area and among the top 25 in ten specialties: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; neurology and neurosurgery; nephrology; urology; orthopaedics; ear, nose and throat; rheumatology; gynecology and psychiatry.
