UM Comprehensive Diabetes Center Ranked in the Top 20 of "America's Best Hospitals" for Diabetes & Endocrine Disorders by U.S. News & World Report
There's only one other Michigan program in the top 50
Once again, the University of Michigan's Comprehensive Diabetes Center and the Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes (MEND) have been ranked in the Top 20 of "America's Best Hospitals" for Diabetes & Endocrine Disorders by the U.S. News & World Report.
The University of Michigan's MEND Division/Diabetes Center is one of only two programs in the state of Michigan that made the top 50 on the U.S. News & World Report's annual list of "America's Best Hospitals" for Diabetes & Endocrine Disorders.
The U.S. News & World Report's rankings differ from other "best of" hospital rankings because, instead of grading hospitals on routine procedures, it looks instead at how well the hospitals do in complex and demanding situations — what the magazine calls "high-stakes medicine." (Full explanation of criteria)
The magazine ranked hospitals in 16 specialties, surveying a total of 4,861 institutions. Out of these, 1,859 hospitals left received a U.S. News score from 0 to 100, based on reputation, death rate, patient safety, and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services.
In addition, only 174 hospitals scored high enough to be ranked in even one of the 16 specialties. And of these, just 21 qualified for the America's Best Honor Roll by ranking at or near the top in at least six specialties — including the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers.
UMHHC is the only hospital in Michigan to make the national Honor Roll of 21 hospitals this year.
