UT hospitals among best in the state and nation 

UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center and UT Medical Branch were recognized in the “Best Hospitals” survey published annually by U.S. News & World Report.

UT MD Anderson Cancer Center was once again ranked the best hospital in the nation for cancer care. Since the survey began in 1990, MD Anderson has been named one of the top two cancer hospitals, and it has ranked first 13 times in the last 16 years. Two MD Anderson subspecialties also ranked high in the survey. In the Ear, Nose and Throat specialty, the Head and Neck Surgery service is ranked No. 15, and Gynecology, Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine ranked No. 17.

UT Southwestern Medical Center is the No. 1-ranked hospital in Dallas-Fort Worth and holds the title as the second best in Texas. It is also nationally ranked among the top 50 programs in six clinical specialties: No. 19 in Urology, No. 24 in Geriatrics, No. 25 in Diabetes & Endocrinology, No. 38 in Neurology & Neurosurgery, No. 39 in Nephrology, and No. 50 in Ear, Nose and Throat.

UT Medical Branch was ranked No. 9 in the Houston metro area and the No. 33 hospital in Texas. It also received high performance ratings in three adult procedures/conditions: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Heart Failure and Colon Cancer Surgery.

U.S. News evaluated data on nearly 5,000 hospitals in 16 adult specialties, nine adult procedures and conditions and 10 pediatric specialties. To be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients.
