The best hospital in the state, according to the rankings, is University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison. It is also rated high performing in nine procedures/conditions: abdominal aortic aneurysm fix, aortic valve surgery, heart bypass surgery, heart failure, colon cancer surgery, COPD, hip replacement surgery, knee replacement surgery, and lung cancer surgery.

Still, both have room for improvement.

U.S. News & World Report analyzes data for 4,500 medical centers to determine the rankings.

The University of Colorado Hospital is the 15th-best hospital in the country, according to this year's edition of the prestigious U.S. News & World Report rankings.

As Colorado's only adult academic medical center, University of Colorado Hospital provides clinical trials and innovative treatments through a strong partnership with the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

Overall, The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota was ranked as the nation's best hospital.

Of the 4,658 US hospitals evaluated this year, just under half met the ranking criteria, which involve being or affiliating with a medical school, having at least 200 beds set up and staffed or offering enough advanced technologies.

This is the 25th consecutive year U of M Health System has been nationally recognized for their performance.

Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital ranked eighth statewide, recognized as high-performing in four procedures or conditions. Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital was ranked 5th in both the Chicago Metro Region and IL.

No other Northeast Florida hospital is listed in the rankings. "In other words, patients whose diagnosis may warrant referral to a hospital outside their community". The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago was named the nation's best hospital for rehabilitation.

Orlando Health did not respond to an e-mail request for comment on Monday. UCHealth's patients are 26% more likely to survive their illness, and they are receiving safer care compared to the national average.
