NEW HAVEN, CT (July 21, 2015) — 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." Of the nearly 5,000 hospitals surveyed, YNHH ranks nationally in eight of 16 specialties.

Diabetes and endocrinology rank in the nation's top 10 at #8, while psychiatry is at #10, gastroenterology and GI surgery at #22 and gynecology at #27

In addition, Yale New Haven Hospital is ranked among the best nationally in four other medical specialties: cancer, ear, nose and throat, geriatrics and pulmonology.
