Spectrum Health Ranked 3rd in State by US News & World Report

Spectrum Health Main Entrance

We in Grand Rapids and West Michigan are pretty proud of our health care system.  In many ways, it is becoming a “health care destination.”  And now, that is being corroborated by the highly rated US News & World Report.

US News & World Report ranked University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers No. 1 in the state. Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak was ranked second. Third place was a tie between Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids and Harper University Hospital in Detroit.

The good news comes from magazine’s Best Hospitals 2012-2013 report that ranked hospitals nationwide in 16 specialties. Spectrum received a national ranking in two areas – gynecology and diabetes and endocrinology. It was ranked “high performing” in nine specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, gastroenterology, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

But, it wasn’t limited to Spectrum.  Saint Mary’s Health Care here in Grand Rapids, was ranked No. 23 on the state list and was recognized as high-performing in four specialties: nephrology, pulmonology, urology and neurology and neurosurgery.

These rankings draw heavily on data from the federal government, and are based on factors such as death rates, patient safety, staffing and specialty services. They also draw on physician surveys about a hospital’s reputation.

Congratulation Spectrum, and St. Mary’s.
