DETROIT – Henry Ford Hospital has been recognized as a Best Hospital in the Ear, Nose & Throat specialty by U.S. News & World Report, which features the top 50 of America’s Best Hospitals across 16 specialties. Henry Ford Hospital ranked 23rd nationally in the Ear, Nose & Throat specialty this year – an improvement over last year’s ranking of 25th in the country.
“Patient care is at the heart of everything we do,” said Kathleen Yaremchuk, M.D., MSA, chair of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Henry Ford. “From multi-disciplinary treatment approaches, to offering the most innovative and advanced procedures available, our aim is to provide the best care possible for a wide range of conditions. I believe this ranking by U.S. News & World Report reflects that commitment.”
In 12 of the 16 specialties, ranking is determined mostly by data. These specialties include Cancer; Cardiology & Heart Surgery; Diabetes & Endocrinology; Ear, Nose & Throat; Gastroenterology & GI Surgery; Geriatrics; Gynecology; Nephrology; Neurology & Neurosurgery; Orthopedics; Pulmonology; and Urology.
Each hospital analyzed in the 12 data-driven rankings received an overall score from 0 to 100 based on four elements: survival, patient safety, care-related factors such as the intensity of nurse staffing and the breadth of patient services, and expert opinion obtained through a physician survey.
This year, more than 4,500 U.S. hospitals were evaluated by U.S. News & World Report.
In addition to the Ear, Nose & Throat ranking, Henry Ford Hospital had five High Performing Specialties, which was an improvement over three last year.
