NEW HAVEN, CT (August 8, 2017) – 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” listing. Of the nearly 5,000 hospitals surveyed, YNHH ranks nationally in nine specialties.

YNHH Psychiatry (11) and Geriatrics (15) specialties rank in the nation’s top 15 while Pulmonology ranks #19, Ear, Nose and Throat #22, Neurology and Neurosurgery ranks #28, while Urology and Diabetes and Endocrinology both rank #29.

Yale New Haven Hospital is ranked among the best nationally in two other medical specialties: Gastroenterology ranks #33 and Kidney Disorders #31.

“We are very proud that Yale New Haven Hospital continues to be recognized as one of America’s Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report,” said Thomas Balcezak, MD, chief medical officer at YNHHS. “These rankings demonstrate our consistent ability to grow many of our patient-centered services and at the same time and deliver the highest quality of care. That U.S. News & World Report recognizes these achievements means we are fulfilling our goal to provide the best care to the people of Connecticut and beyond.”
