Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) continues to rank among the top U.S. hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report's annual "America's Best Hospitals" rankings. Of the nearly 5,000 hospitals surveyed, YNHH ranks nationally in 11 of 16 specialties.

Diabetes and endocrinology rank in the nation's top 10 at #7, while psychiatry is at #11, gastroenterology and GI surgery at #17 and gynecology at #18. YNHH is the only Connecticut hospital to be ranked nationally by U.S. News & World Report.

In addition, Yale-New Haven is ranked among the best nationally in seven other medical specialties: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, ear, nose and throat, geriatrics, nephrology, pulmonology and urology.

"The consistency with which Yale-New Haven Hospital has been recognized as one of America's Best Hospitals in U.S. News & World Report continues to reflect the growth, hard work and dedication to patient-centered care and that is our hallmark," said Peter Herbert, MD, chief of staff.
