STANFORD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stanford Health Care’s renowned Stanford Hospital has once again been ranked one of the nation’s best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, earning national top tier rankings in 12 of 16 medical specialties for 2014-15.

“It is gratifying for Stanford to once again be recognized by U.S. News for delivering the highest levels of patient care excellence,” said Amir Dan Rubin, President and CEO, Stanford Health Care. “At Stanford Health Care we seek to deliver the leading edge of care with the highest levels of coordination and compassion, to each and every patient we have the privilege to serve,” said Rubin.
For 2014-15, U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties and ranked the top 50 in most of the specialties. Just 3 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed for Best Hospitals 2014-15 earned national ranking in even one specialty. Stanford was ranked among the nation’s very best hospitals in: cancer; cardiology & heart surgery; ear, nose & throat; gastroenterology & GI surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology & neurosurgery; orthopaedics; pulmonology; rheumatology; and urology.

“The latest U.S. News rankings are yet another validation of the outstanding patient care provided by our highly skilled and deeply compassionate Stanford Medicine faculty and trainees,” said Lloyd Minor, MD, the Carl and Elizabeth Naumann Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine. “At Stanford, we are leading the biomedical revolution and every day we strive to push past the current boundaries of medicine toward our vision of transforming patient care.”
