For the 18th year in a row, the University of Michigan Health System has been named to the honor roll of "America's Best Hospitals" for adults by the U.S. News & World Report. Overall we placed 17th on the 2012 nationwide honor roll and were named #1 in Michigan and the Detroit metropolitan area. In fact, U-M is the only hospital in Michigan named to the national honor roll - and one of only 8 in the nation to make the honor roll every year. U.S. News also ranks specific types of medical care individually, and U-M earned a high national ranking in all 16 of these evaluated specialties. Of the 4,825 hospitals considered for the rankings, only 140 made the list in even one specialty.
