US News & World Report Ranks the Top Hospitals and Nursing Homes in 2011

Hospitals

U.S. News evaluated almost 5,000 hospitals to rank the best in 16 adult specialties from cancer to urology. Death rates, patient safety, and reputation with more than 9,000 specialists went into the 2010-11 rankings. Of 152 hospitals ranked in at least one specialty, 14 are featured in an Honor Roll for landing near the top in at least six specialties.

Childrens Hospitals

For the 2010-11 rankings, U.S. News requested data from 170 pediatric centers and used survey results from thousands of physicians in 10 pediatric specialties who were asked where they would send the sickest children. In all, 62 hospitals ranked in at least one specialty. The Honor Roll features eight hospitals that ranked in all 10.

Nursing Homes

The 12 nursing homes listed alphabetically below, culled from more than 15,500 homes in the latest U.S. News America’s Best Nursing Homes rankings, make up the Honor Roll. They had to get four straight quarters of perfect five-star ratings from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in each of the three categories in which the agency evaluates nursing homes: health inspections, nurse staffing, and quality of care. Several are pediatric facilities, defined as nursing homes because they provide Medicaid-funded long-term care or skilled rehabilitation services.

    This link to the US NEws report on nursing homes was very helpful and timely as we are currently seeking nursing home information. Although we are not located in the areas referenced, I was able to go into the report and find the information I need for Iowa. Thanks so much for the link!
