Methodist, Baptist Lead Way in Rankings
Methodist Healthcare ranked No. 1 in the Memphis metropolitan area and No. 3 in the state of Tennessee in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals 2012-2013.
The system’s four Memphis area adult hospitals, which are licensed as one, are Methodist University Hospital, Methodist North, Methodist South and Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown.
Methodist was cited as high-performing in 12 medical specialties, more than any other hospital in Tennessee. Those specialties were cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes/endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; orthopedics; pulmonology; and urology.
Only 148 hospitals were nationally ranked in one or more specialties. To be included in the metro area report, a hospital had to score in the top 25 percent among its peers in at least one medical specialty.
Specialty rankings are based on reputation, services and volumes, safety and clinical outcomes.
“We are honored that once again the outstanding care Methodist provides to our patients is being recognized on this prestigious list,” Gary S. Shorb, president and CEO of Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare said in a statement.
