The 2017-18 U.S. News and World Report “Best Hospitals” guide rated UVA Medical Center as the No. 1 hospital in Virginia, and honored 11 specialties at UVA — including five in the Department of Medicine — as among the best in the U.S. This is the second consecutive year UVA has topped the Virginia hospital list.
Of the six specialties ranked among the top 50 nationally, three are in (or, in the case of Cancer, linked to) the Department of Medicine:
- Cancer (Hematology-Oncology), ranked 30th
- Diabetes and Endocrinology, ranked 44th
- Cardiology and heart surgery, ranked 50th
