U.S. News and World Report recently ranked Columbus Regional Hospital among the best hospitals in the nation and CRH Pulmonologist Dr. David Wilson was named one of the top physicians in the country.
CRH is ranked 13th in Indiana (out of 167 Hoosier hospitals) and is also recognized as one of America’s high-performing hospitals in Neurology & Neurosurgery.
The 23rd annual edition of U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals rankings showcases more than 720 of the nation’s roughly 5,000 hospitals.
The hospital rankings, said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow, are like a GPS-type aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills in the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges. “All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care,” said Comarow. “They are where other hospitals send the toughest cases.”
The rankings were published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. The complete rankings and methodology are available at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals.
