U.S. News and World Report surveyed the nation’s roughly 5,000 hospitals to come up with this year’s list of Best Hospitals. Fewer than 150 of those hospitals are nationally ranked. The Nebraska Medical Center is ranked 45th nationally for its cancer care. This places the hospital in the top three percent of the 4,806 analyzed for the latest Best Hospitals rankings to be ranked in even one of the 16 specialties.

The Nebraska Medical Center was also “high-performing” in eight other specialties including:

· Ear, Nose & Throat · Gastroenterology · Geriatrics

· Nephrology · Neurology & Neurosurgery · Orthopaedics

· Pulmonology · Urology

“These rankings are proof of the tremendous amount of work our physicians and staff have done to care for our patients; many of whom have come here from all over with very serious and rare conditions,” said Glenn A. Fosdick, president and CEO of The Nebraska Medical Center. “It’s an honor to be recognized as a leader in so many different areas.”
The Nebraska Medical Center is known for excellence, innovation and quality patient care.  As the teaching hospital for the University of Nebraska Medical Center, it is the largest healthcare facility in the state.
