“Having multiple facilities and multiple specialties throughout the system ranked is a reflection of our commitment to provide the best care for our patients closer to where they live,” said Roger Ray, MD, Chief Physician Executive and Executive Vice President for Carolinas HealthCare System. “The high level of quality care delivered by our physicians and our integrated approach to delivering that care drives these recognitions.”

Carolinas Medical Center had 11 other specialties recognized as high performing and was named the best hospital in Charlotte. Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast had nine specialties recognized and was ranked second. Carolinas Medical Center-Mercy was the fourth ranked hospital in Charlotte with six high-performing specialties. Moses H. Cone also had nine specialties designated as high-performing.

AnMed Health was the second-ranked hospital in South Carolina with seven high-performing specialties and Bon Secours St. Francis ranked fourth with five specialties recognized.

U.S. News & World Report evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties and ranked the top 50 in each, as well as recognizing high-performing hospitals providing care comparable to the level of nationally ranked peer organizations. Less than 3 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed earned a national ranking.
 
Rankings reflect care for patients needing an advanced level of care, such as a complex surgery, or care stemming from a challenging condition or additional risk because of age or multiple health problems. Objective measures such as patient survival, patient safety data and other data largely determine the rankings in most specialties.
