23 Aug U.S. News & World Report Ranks Froedtert Hospital as Part of the Best Hospitals List
Froedtert Hospital has been ranked #2 in the Milwaukee metro area and #3 in the State of Wisconsin in US News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” for 2017-2018. Additionally, it was nationally ranked in four adult specialties: #38 in Pulmonology; #41 in Ear, Nose & Throat; #42 in Nephrology; and #49 in Gynecology.
The Best Hospitals 2017-18 rankings cover more than 4,500 medical centers across the country and span 25 medical specialties, procedures and conditions. Of those hospitals evaluated, only 152 performed well enough to rank nationally in at least one specialty. To be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients. The rankings in procedures and conditions, by contrast, focus on typical Medicare patients.
