The U.S. News hospital ratings, widely regarded as a standard of excellence in patient care, listed national and regional rankings in multiple specialties for four DMC hospitals, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital, DMC Harper University Hospital, DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital and DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital.
“We are proud to be recognized again by U.S. News Media and World Report. Their rankings are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our physicians and clinical staff and exemplify the depth of quality and specialty care delivered every day at Detroit Medical Center,” states Mike Duggan, CEO, Detroit Medical Center.

The hospital rankings, said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow, are like a GPS-type aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills in the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges. “All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care,” said Comarow. “They are where other hospitals send the toughest cases.”
The rankings are published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Highlights of the 2012-13 rankings will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2013 guidebook, to go on sale in August.
