CMC Named To US News & World Report's List of America's Best Hospitals

U.S News & World Report announced its annual list of America's Best Hospitals. Carolinas Medical Center (CMC) in Charlotte has been ranked among the nation's best in two categories, orthopedics and urology. CMC has previously been ranked by U.S. News four other times. Carolinas Medical Center is the only Charlotte-area hospital to make the list.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings come on the heels of other local and national recognition. CMC has been named the "Consumer's Choice Preferred Hospital" in the Charlotte market by the National Research Corporation nine times.
HealthGrades, the nation's leading independent healthcare ratings company, rated CMC as best in the Charlotte area for overall cardiac services, and among the top five in North Carolina.

J.D. Power and Associates chose CMC as the first hospital in North Carolina to be recognized for service excellence in maternity care. Recently, J.D. Power also recognized CMC-University and CMC-Pineville for excellence in maternity care.

To compile its annual rankings, U.S. News & World Report uses RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, NC. Being named to the U.S. News rankings is not easy. 5,642 hospitals were evaluated. Only 173 made the lists. Hospitals are measured largely by hard data which indicates mortality rate, experience in certain procedures, reputation among other physicians, excellence of nursing staff and availability of advanced technology.
