7 UVa. Specialties Recognized in 'Best Hospitals’ Guide

July 15, 2014

Seven University of Virginia Health System specialties are honored in the U.S. News & World Report 2014-2015 “Best Hospitals” guide.

U.S. News cited the following programs for being among the top 25 percent in their respective specialties:

- Cancer
- Diabetes & Endocrinology
- Gynecology
- Nephrology
- Neurology & Neurosurgery
- Orthopedics
- Urology

These seven specialties join the neonatology and urology programs at UVa. Children’s Hospital, which were honored in June as part of U.S. News’ “Best Children’s Hospitals” guide.

U.S. News bases its “Best Hospitals” guide on several factors, including patient outcomes, patient safety, staffing levels, the use of technology, availability of certain patient services and recognitions by certain third-party groups.
