UTHSC physicians celebrate Top 50 ranking in 5 categories

November 2004

Thanks in large part to innovative faculty physicians of the Health Science Center, Bexar County’s University Health System was named one of the Top 50 hospitals in the country in five clinical specialties by U.S. News & World Report.

The Health Science Center provides all the physicians to staff University Health System facilities, which collectively were recognized among America’s Best Hospitals in the newsmagazine. The Health System has been listed in the rankings every year since 2000.

This year, Health Science Center faculty earned Top 50 honors in five medical/surgical specialties: endocrinology, including diabetes care, a first-time ranking; heart and heart surgery, also for the first time; kidney disease, which was listed in 2003; orthopaedics, listed in 2003; and another repeat area, respiratory disorders.

University Health System, the primary teaching hospital system for the Health Science Center, is the only San Antonio hospital system included in the rankings.

"The standards for ranking in Best Hospitals are rigorous," U.S. News reported. "Of all 6,012 U.S. medical centers, only 177, or fewer than 1 in 30, were of high-enough quality to be ranked in even a single specialty this year."
