Each year, U.S. News & World Report recognizes America's Best Hospitals. They're the hospitals known for advanced, life-saving procedures and medical breakthroughs. The hospitals with the best and most capable physicians.

Or, as U.S. News & World Report puts it, they're

“the places where other hospitals send their toughest cases.”

This year, the only area hospital named to this
prestigious list was the Teaching Hospital.

Of the nation's 5,000 hospitals, only 732 were chosen by U.S. News & World Report as Best Hospitals. To rank among America's elite regional medical centers, a hospital must be designated as high-performing in at least one critical medical specialty.

To earn that high-performing designation, a hospital must rank in the top 25% of qualifying hospitals within a particular specialty. And, while no other area hospital even had one such designation, the Teaching Hospital had SEVEN.

Erlanger’s High Performing Specialties: • Neurology & Neurosurgery • Orthopedics • Urology • Diabetes & Endocrinology • Pulmonology  • Gastroenterology • Nephrology
