Maine Medical Center Ranked Best in State
U.S. News & World Report lists MMC among places “where other hospitals send the toughest cases.”
In addition to the state’s highest ranking, Maine Medical Center was recognized as “high-performing” in five specialties:
-- Cancer
-- Gynecology
-- Nephrology
-- Orthopedics
-- Urology
This year’s Best Hospitals, the 23rd annual edition produced by U.S. News & World Report, showcases more than 720 of the nation’s roughly 5,000 hospitals. Fewer than 150 are nationally ranked in at least one of 16 medical specialties.
“All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care,” says Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. “They are where other hospitals send the toughest cases.”
The hospital rankings, he adds, are an aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills in the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges.
