By Michael Kinsley and Peter HambyPublished May 15, 2018 12:57:38In a world of increasing access to medical care, hospitals are increasingly becoming more important as a way of managing chronic conditions, helping to address social ills, and supporting communities.
But where do the best medical facilities in the U.S. rank?
A new report from the University of Washington found that hospitals are not the only thing that are improving their performance.
In fact, many hospitals have seen significant improvements over the past few years.
The ranking comes from a new report, “A Hospital Ranking,” by the University’s Health Policy Research Institute.
The rankings, which include metrics such as patient satisfaction, patient outcomes, hospital quality and patient safety, are based on data from the nation’s five largest hospitals.
The University of Michigan Health System ranked No. 1, the University Medical Center of South Carolina No. 2, and the University at Buffalo No. 3.
The ranking comes after years of data collection by the Washington, D.C.-based organization and other health care researchers, who have been tracking hospitals’ performance in more than 100 countries.
The rankings are based largely on data on patient health outcomes and patient satisfaction from a wide range of hospitals, which is used to determine how health care is delivered and financed.
The hospitals included in the rankings are those that have the best record on patient satisfaction at the time of the report’s release.
A few notable hospitals, such as the University Hospital of California at Los Angeles and the New York City Hospital Center, have been in the top 10 for years, and others, like the Cleveland Clinic, have improved over the last decade.
While hospitals in many countries, including the U, have seen an uptick in patient satisfaction over the years, the rankings don’t mean that every hospital is perfect.
Many are working hard to improve.
The new ranking does show that the top hospitals are improving, said Andrew W. Golledge, director of the University Health Policy Institute.
In a country that relies on a system of care where most people receive care in the hospital, hospitals should be considered part of a broader network that serves the country.
But, Gollinge said, the hospital rankings may not capture the full picture of how well hospitals are performing.
“It may not tell you what the average level of patient care is, what the best level of care is,” he said.
The report found that the best hospitals in the country are not always located in the same areas of the country, or in areas where there is high turnover, such is the case in China and the U of A.
In China, where hospitals tend to have a higher turnover, the report found, it is more common for hospitals to be located in areas with a higher incidence of cancer.
That makes it harder for the government to track hospitals’ progress, Goss said.
“What we find is that if a hospital is not performing well, it’s likely that it’s a poor performance because the Chinese are very competitive in attracting doctors,” he explained.
The Washington, DC-based organization is a public policy research institute focused on health care and other issues.
It has published more than 30 research reports, and was ranked number one in the nation for the fourth consecutive year.
