VUMC named to list of nation’s best hospitals

Becker's Hospital Review recently named Vanderbilt University Medical Center one of America's 50 Best Hospitals.

According to Becker's Hospital Review, “this year's ranking covers a wide spectrum of hospitals, from well-known academic medical centers to less widely recognized community hospitals that have reached greatness. Each organization on Becker's list has put patients' needs first, driven a variety of innovations and helped set the bar for high-quality care.”

The list that includes VUMC focuses on acute-care, multi-specialty academic medical centers and large community hospitals. This list does not focus on specialty hospitals or smaller community hospitals.
