Augusta’s University Hospital Ranked 3rd in State by U.S. News and World Report
In the latest “Best Hospitals” ranking from US News & World Report, University Hospital was ranked third in Georgia out of nearly 175 hospitals in the state.
The study evaluated data on nearly 5,000 hospitals in 16 adult specialties, nine adult procedures and conditions and 10 pediatric specialties. University Hospital scored particularly well in several categories and received the highest possible rating in colon cancer surgery, heart failure, hip replacement, knee replacement, heart bypass surgery, abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The ratings in procedures and conditions focused on typical Medicare patients. No other hospital in the area ranked “high-performing” for any procedure or condition. All other rankings for local hospitals were “average” or “below average.”
