Yale New Haven Hospital continues to rank among the top U.S. hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” listing. Of the nearly 5,000 hospitals surveyed, YNHH ranks nationally in eight of 15 specialties for 2021-22.

“We are very pleased to be named again to U.S. News & World Report’s listing,” said Keith Churchwell, MD, YNHH president. “This national recognition comes at a momentous time in health care. The talent and dedication of our entire medical community, coupled with the advances in treatments, reflect the ongoing commitment to those we serve at a time when the focus and needs of health care continue to change daily. As Connecticut’s top-ranked hospital, we are proud to provide the highest level of care to patients and families, hand-in-hand with innovative research in an academic environment.”

YNHH ranked #11 in Psychiatry, and performed well in Geriatrics (#21), Pulmonology (#27), Diabetes and Endocrinology (#33), Neurology and Neurosurgery (#42), Gastroenterology (#45) and Gynecology and Ear, Nose and Throat (both at #47).

The U.S. News “Best Hospitals” rankings rely on clinical data and an annual survey of specialists. The ranking methodology factors in objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival, discharge-to-home rates, patient volume and nursing quality. In addition, patient outcomes, clinical services and processes, and compliance with best practices are considered. The entire national listing is available online at www.usnews.com/best-hospitals.
