University of Colorado Hospital Ranks Among America’s Best Hospitals in 2009
Date : - 16/07/2009
Aurora, Colo. (July 16, 2009) – University of Colorado Hospital has been ranked one of the best in the country in six of 16 medical specialties in U.S. News & World Report's 2009-10 publication of America’s Best Hospitals.

University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) is recognized in more categories than any other hospital in the state of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region.

Six care categories

UCH ranked as one of the best in diabetes & endocrine disorders, gynecology, kidney disorders, respiratory disorders, rehabilitation and rheumatology. The other ranked specialties are cancer, digestive disorders, ear, nose, and throat, geriatric care, heart and heart surgery; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology, orthopedics, psychiatry, and urology.

“This is another indicator of the clinical excellence our hospital brings to patients here,” said Bruce Schroffel, President & CEO of University of Colorado Hospital.

“Together with the physicians of the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, our medical outcomes have long ranked near the top of the nation’s academic hospitals, too,” Schroffel said. “This year marks the 15th consecutive year U.S. News in particular has put us up there. We’re honored.”

Rankings driven by hard data

The rankings in 12 of the 16 specialties – all but ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation, and rheumatology – are predominantly driven by hard data. There are four components: reputation, death rate, patient safety (new this year), and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services.

In these 12 specialties, hospitals have to pass through several gates to be ranked and considered a Best Hospital

1 The first gate determines whether a hospital is
eligible to be ranked at all by requiring that it
must meet any of three conditions: be a teaching
hospital; have at least 200 beds; or have at least
100 beds plus at least four out of eight key
medical technologies such as current-generation CT
scanners and precision radiation therapy.

2 The second gate determines whether a hospital is
eligible to be ranked in a particular specialty. To
be eligible, the hospital had to either have at
least a specified volume of certain procedures and
conditions over three years, or had to have been
nominated by at least one physician in the last
three years of the annual specialist survey

3 The third gate is whether a hospital does well
enough to be ranked, based on its reputation, death
rate, patient safety, and factors like nurse
staffing and technology

4 In the four other specialties – ophthalmology,
psychiatry, rehabilitation, and rheumatology –
ranking is based solely on nominations from the
three most recent physician surveys

Now in its 20th year, the multi-platform 2009-10 U.S. News & World Report’s America's Best Hospitals guide is the most extensive hospital ranking to date. It includes rankings of 174 medical centers nationwide in 16 specialties – with full data available online for another 1,500 unranked hospitals.

The University of Colorado Hospital is the Rocky Mountain region's leading academic medical center, and has been recognized as one of the United States’ best hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report. It is best known as an innovator in patient care and often as one of the first hospitals to bring new medicine to patients’ bedsides. Located at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colo., the hospital’s physicians are all affiliated with the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, part of the University of Colorado system.
