U.S. News & World Report recently named the Medical University of South Carolina as not only one of the best hospitals in the country for the treatment of ear, nose and throat conditions, but also as the best hospital in the state of South Carolina.
“I am proud to hear that U.S. News and World Report has ranked MUSC as the No. 1 hospital in South Carolina," Patrick S. Cawley, M.D., executive director and chief executive officer of the MUSC Medical Center and MUSC vice president for clinical operations, said. "This award reflects the excellence the MUSC teams pursue every day to deliver the highest level of quality and safe care for every MUSC patient. At the same time, we are also teaching the next generation of care providers and conducting the latest research innovations in health care so we can help all of South Carolina achieve this excellence."
Additionally, MUSC was deemed as being “high-performing” in the treatment of nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics and pulmonology and urology.
“It is a nice accolade," Paul Lambert, M.D., director of the MUSC Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, said. "I think it reflects the quality of our faculty, our clinical programs, and our research enterprise."
MUSC's rankings were in U.S. News & World Report's 26th edition of the Best Hospitals rankings at www.usnews.com/besthospitals.
“Patients deserve high-quality information on hospitals,” Ben Harder, chief of health analysis at U.S. News, said. “We strive to provide them with the most comprehensive data available so they can make more informed decisions together with their doctor about where to undergo treatment.”
