While no one looks forward to a hospital stay, some Michigan hospitals provide better service and safer care than others. Here are the best hospitals in Michigan and around the country.
University of Michigan Hospitals-Michigan Medicine in Ann Arbor was once again recognized as the best hospital in Michigan and the fifth best in the country, according to the 29th annual Best Hospitals report by U.S. News and World Report.
21 Michigan hospitals won recognition in various categories in the 2018-19 report, approximately 10 fewer than last year. DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital in Commerce Township, St. John Macomb-Oakland in Warren and McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital, all of which ranked last year, did not make this year’s list.
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota was ranked number 1 in the country for the fifth consecutive year. Other top hospitals were Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
A variety of criteria were used to rank 514 hospitals by state and region; including survival and readmission rates, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing, among other factors. This year’s report placed greater emphasis on patient outcomes and experience.Do You Have a Case?
