According to the Department of Medicine, this year is the tenth year in a row for Loyola’s heart program to be nationally ranked by U.S. News.
The ranking and the consistent high satisfaction reviews by recently discharged patients at the hospital are helping maintain Loyola’s high reputation in the medical field.
Here is the rest of the article in the news archive for Loyola’s Department of Medicine:
Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood is ranked 18th in the nation in Cardiology and Heart Surgery, in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals 2012-2013. Last year, Loyola was ranked 20th.
This is the 10th year in a row Loyola’s heart program has been nationally ranked by U.S. News.
The magazine ranked 11 Loyola specialties high-performing, meaning they are among the top 25 percent of hospitals in these specialties. Loyola’s high-performing specialties are cancer; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; orthopaedics; pulmonology and urology.
Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park, a member of Loyola University Health System, is high-performing in two specialties, orthopaedics and urology.
The rankings were published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Highlights of the 2012-13 rankings will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2013 guidebook, to go on sale in August.
