Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood was recently ranked among the top three hospitals in IL, according to U.S. News & World Report's 2018-19 Best Hospitals rankings. "The citizens of our state can take great pride and comfort in the knowledge that their only public, statewide hospital system is consistently cited as one of the best in the country.".

The University of Chicago Medical Center and Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn both tied for fourth-place among top IL hospitals.

The magazine on Tuesday released its highly respected rankings of national, state and regional hospitals. More than 1,100 hospitals were rated high performing in at least one common procedure or condition, and 29 received a high performing rating in all nine procedures and conditions evaluated. Those are: ear, nose and throat, cancer, gynecology, nephrology and orthopedics.

The data used information from 4,500 different medical centers across the country to rank each one.

"This national recognition confirms what our patients tell us - that Baptist Health hospitals provide the very best of care", Colman said in a separate news release.

The annual Best Hospitals rankings are created to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.

As Colorado's only adult academic medical center, University of Colorado Hospital provides clinical trials and innovative treatments through a strong partnership with the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Four Advocate facilities ranked in the Top 10 both within IL and the Chicago metro area. UW Medical Center cancer services are provided through Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, which is under the ownership and shared governance of UW Medicine, Seattle Children's and Fred Hutch. No Sacramento-area hospital was ranked below average in any category.

These rankings are based on critical health elements, including patient survival and safety, hospital reputation, and care-related factors.

"Patients still have to do their own research and talk with their doctor", U.S. News said in its explanation of the annual rankings.

U.S. News has also changed its methodology over time, which affects how hospitals rank over time, said Ben Harder, who oversees the rankings for U.S. News.

Other local hospitals that ranked on the state list are Sutter Medical Center, 16; Mercy San Juan Medical Center, 34; Mercy General Hospital, tied at 34; and Sutter Roseville, 43.

There are 31 hospitals in New Hampshire, and three have met the high US News standards.
