For the second year in a row, The University of Tennessee Medical Center is recognized in the "America’s Best Hospitals" edition of U.S. News & World Report.
The 2013-2014 report ranks the medical center number three in the state of Tennessee and number one in the Knoxville region, based on its patient care performance and other key factors. The following 11 specialities were also recognized as high performing.
The rankings from the annual report are based on objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the adequacy of nurse staffing levels, and other data relative to the quality of care provided. U.S. News publishes the Best Hospitals report annually to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face a particularly difficult surgery or have a challenging condition or added risk because of other health problems or age. The U.S. News & World Report "2013-2014 America’s Best Hospitals" is available online, and will appear in print on newsstands and at bookstores beginning August 27.
