U.S. News & World Report Names Top Hospitals in South Carolina
The Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston was again named the top hospital in the state by U.S. News and World Report.
Five specialities at MUSC, including cancer, gynecology and urology, also ranked nationally among the best programs in the United States.
“These rankings reflect not just reputation but patient outcomes, teaching the next generation of care providers, developing new innovations to improve health, and health care leadership,” said Dr. Patrick Cawley, CEO of Medical University Hospital, in a prepared statement. MUSC’s ear, nose and throat department ranked 14th best in the country — the highest score among the hospital’s specialties. Roper Hospital and Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital, also in Charleston, tied for second place in the state. Last week, the federal government published star ratings for overall hospital performance. Roper Hospital and Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital earned five out of five stars.
Several specialties at Medical University Hospital ranked nationally among the best programs in the country.
