UT Southwestern Medical Center again took the top spot on U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of the best hospitals in Dallas-Fort Worth, topping Baylor University Medical Center and Medical City Dallas.
UT Southwestern came in as the second best hospital in the state, and it was nationally ranked for seven specialties: Geriatrics (No. 18), Diabetes & Endocrinology (21), Neurology & Neurosurgery (21), Nephrology (25), Urology (34), Pulmonology (43), and Orthopedics (49).
The annual Best Hospitals listings from U.S. News are a product of an analysis of data from about 5,000 medical centers, and survey responses from more than 30,000 physicians.
U.S. News ranked Houston Methodist Hospital best in the state. Here’s how the rest of the DFW rankings shake out, with state rankings in parentheses:
