U.S. News rates U-M Health as Michigan’s No. 1 hospital


University of Michigan Health has been recognized as the top hospital in Michigan, according to U.S. News and World Report’s Best Hospitals Rankings for 2023-24.

U-M Health, the clinical division of Michigan Medicine, also was the only hospital in the state named to the nation’s Honor Roll of hospitals, recognizing the institution for strong overall performance.

“It’s an honor for U-M Health to receive continued recognition for our exceptional level of patient care,” said David Miller, president of the U-M Health System and executive vice dean for clinical affairs for the Medical School.

“We are grateful for the hard work and commitment of our team members who make our patients a priority every single day.”

U.S. News generates its rankings by evaluating data from 4,500 hospitals on four different categories: patient experience, outcomes, care-related factors and expert opinions from physician surveys.

“These rankings are one measure of U-M Health’s dedication to delivering high-quality care to every patient who comes through our doors,” said Marschall S. Runge, dean of the Medical School, CEO of Michigan Medicine and executive vice president of medical affairs.

“We are proud of our teams whose commitment to innovation and exemplary care helps earn this honor.” 

U-M Health is ranked No. 8 in the country for ophthalmology, and received national rankings in the following specialties:

U.S. News & World Report also awards “high performing” designation to hospitals for a number of specific procedures and conditions. U-M Health, as well as Sparrow Health System and UM Health-West, are named as high performing in a range of specialties.  

Additionally, U-M Health was also recently ranked No.9 in Expertscape’s All-Around Expert Medical Centers for high rankings in 21 different medical and surgical specialties. U-M Health is among just 29 hospitals in the country rated as expert in all 21 specialties tracked by Expertscape.
