Michigan Medicine makes Honor Roll as No. 11 in the nation, with 13 ranked specialty services

Michigan Medicine’s adult hospitals were ranked best in Michigan and 11th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” rankings for 2020-21. The Rogel Cancer Center continued to be among the nation’s leading cancer programs and the only one in Michigan to be ranked. This distinguished honor reflects excellence in patient care.

The Rogel Cancer Center is part of Michigan Medicine -- the academic medical center of the University of Michigan -- which was ranked 38th in cancer care nationally and No. 1 in the state of Michigan. The organization was also given the USNWR Honor Roll distinction, marking it as one of 20 U.S. hospitals that deliver the highest quality of care across a variety of specialties, procedures and conditions.

“At Michigan Medicine, our commitment is to our patients, first and foremost,” said Marschall Runge, M.D., Ph.D., executive vice president for medical affairs at the University of Michigan, chief executive officer of Michigan Medicine and dean of the U-M Medical School. “This honor is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our incredible team of health care providers.”

“Consistently ranking among the nation’s top hospitals is something that reflects not only on our quality and safety but also on the commitment of our physicians, nurses and other team members to providing the best care,” said David Spahlinger, M.D., president of the University of Michigan Health System and executive vice dean for clinical affairs of the U-M Medical School.

“Our national ranking is truly an honor,” said Jeffrey Desmond, M.D., chief medical officer of Michigan Medicine. “I’m so proud of our collaborative teams, all across the board, for their dedication to providing the highest quality of care to all of our valued patients.”

The U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” methodologies in most areas of care are based on a combination of reputation surveys and objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.

In June, Michigan Medicine also received USNWR recognition for C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, which was the only children’s hospital in Michigan nationally ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties evaluated in the 2020-2021 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings. Mott was ranked No. 26 for pediatric cancer care, which was tops in Michigan.
