Today, a national hospital ranking program honored the U-M Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, naming us among the nation's finest providers for ear, nose and throat care. Our ear, nose and throat program is No. 1 in the state of Michigan and No. 13 in the nation. These rankings are a reflection of our exception providers, support staff and researchers, all of whom work together every day to bring innovative care and discoveries to our patients. Thanks to our entire team for helping make these rankings a reality.

UMHS was recognized in 15 of the 16 adult specialty areas and ranked in 11 by the U.S. News & World Report list of “Best Hospitals,” which also named UMHS the No. 1 hospital in Michigan and the metro Detroit area. Only 2.7 percent, or 137 hospitals out of 5,000 in the U.S., earned even one ranked spot.

This is the 23rd year in a row that UMHS has been recognized for strong across-the-board performance on a national level. The U.S. News’ “Best Hospitals” list is designed to address the highest-performing hospitals for complicated and serious medical conditions and procedures.

The adult care figures come as C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital earned top rankings in the U.S. News & World Report list of Best Children’s Hospitals earlier this month. C.S. Mott was the only hospital in Michigan to be ranked nationally in all 10 pediatric specialty areas evaluated in the report.
