CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -
The hospital system which calls Charleston home has been named South Carolina's best hospital for the fourth straight year by U.S. News & World Report.
The data used information from 4,500 different medical centers across the country to rank each one. The hospital also received recognition as one the top 25 hospitals for ear, nose and throat treatment and top 50 for its services in orthopedics and nephrology.
“Making these lists means we are finding new ways to deliver and improve patient care, we’re tearing down barriers to accessing that care, successfully training the health care leaders of tomorrow, and integrating our research discoveries in real-time whenever possible," MUSC Health CEO and VP for health affairs Dr. Patrick J. Cawley said. "The citizens of our state can take great pride and comfort in the knowledge that their only public, statewide hospital system is consistently cited as one of the best in the country.".
The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and Johns Hopkins in Maryland took the top three slots on the list. All were put on the report's honor roll, which recognized 20 hospitals with "outstanding performance" across multiple areas.
