UCH hospitals recognized among the best in CA and nationally
The hospitals of University of California Health (UCH) once again have been rated among the best in the state and the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2021-2022 Best Hospitals rankings. UCLA Health is recognized on the Best Hospitals Honor Roll as the third best in the nation and first in California. UCSF Health is ninth nationally and first in Northern California. All five UC academic health centers that own or operate hospitals were among the best in the state out of 416 California hospitals evaluated.
UCH hospitals further distinguished themselves by being nationally ranked in two or more specialties. Only 140 of the more than 1,800 hospitals eligible for the analysis were ranked in the top 50 in one or more specialties. The neurology and neurosurgery program at UCSF Health is ranked first in the nation.
“We have a high concentration of physician and researcher expertise within University of California Health (UCH), and they share that knowledge across the system,” said Dr. Carrie L. Byington, executive vice president of UCH and an infectious disease expert. “That spirit of collaboration keeps us at the forefront of academic medicine and improves our patients’ quality of care.”
