Medical Center Receives Stellar National Rankings
It’s the greatest number of specialty rankings the Medical Center has achieved in 21 consecutive years of being included in the ranking. This historic achievement came in July, just weeks after Brenner Children’s Hospital was named for the first time among the nation’s best children’s hospitals in a separate U.S. News ranking.
Nephrology ranked ninth and is the Medical Center’s first specialty to break into the ranking’s elite top 10. Five other specialties made the national top 25:
Gynecology (27th), Neurology & Neurosurgery (30th), Urology (35th), Geriatrics (39th), Cardiology & Heart Surgery (46th), and Orthopedics (48th) also were ranked.
Brenner Children’s Hospital ranked nationally in three pediatric specialties: Neonatology (36th), Orthopedics (44th) and Urology (33rd).
The national adult rankings placed Wake Forest Baptist second in North Carolina behind only Duke University Medical Center.
“I could not be more proud of what has been accomplished in just a few short years, and I want to publicly thank everyone at the Medical Center for their individual and collective roles in this achievement.”
