NorthShore University HealthSystem a Top 3 Hospital in Illinois and Chicago Metro Area in U.S. News & World Report’s Annual Best Hospitals Rankings

7/30/2019 – NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) has been ranked as the #3 hospital in both the Chicago metro area and the state of Illinois in the 2019-20 U.S. News & World Report’s Annual Best Hospitals survey.

The annual Best Hospitals rankings, now in its 30th year, recognizes hospitals that excel in treating patients with the most challenging medical conditions. More than 4,500 hospitals nationwide were analyzed and ranked in 25 different specialties. 

NorthShore was ranked 3rd in both the state and the Chicago area as high performing across multiple areas of care.

“This ranking is a testament to the hard work and effort of NorthShore clinicians and staff to deliver the highest quality care to our patients,” said JP Gallagher, NorthShore President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are committed to continuing to improve our performance across the organization in quality and patient-centered outcomes.”

NorthShore was nationally ranked in Gynecology (#37) and Urology (#50), and also recognized as “high-performing” in six clinical specialties (Gastroenterology and GI surgery, Geriatrics, Nephrology, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, and Pulmonology and Lung Surgery) -- and all nine complex procedures and conditions included in the rankings. 

“It’s great to be recognized for the collaborative care provided at NorthShore for our most complex patients,” said Lakshmi Halasyamani, MD, Chief Quality and Transformation Officer. “We are proud of all of the efforts of our frontline providers and staff and those who work behind the scenes to ensure that each patient receives the best possible care.”

U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to give patients, families and physicians information to support their search for the best care across a range of procedures, conditions and specialties.

The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume, and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
