Cancer Services, Nephrology Programs Recognized as ‘High Performing’ by U.S News & World Report

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Two UI Health specialty programs have been recognized as “High Performing” in the U.S. News & World Report 2018–19 Best Hospitals Rankings.

The University of Illinois Hospital was rated High Performing in Nephrology and Cancer Services in the U.S. News rankings, one of more than 1,100 to be named High Performing in at least one specialty.

The rankings compare more than 4,500 medical centers nationally across 25 specialties, procedures, and conditions to help patients and providers make informed decisions about where to receive care. Hospitals that are not nationally ranked but scored high enough in a specialty to put them in the top 10% of the analyzed centers are recognized as High Performing.

Cancer Services at UI Health comprises a number of cancer programs committed to diagnosing and treating common and rare cancers. Our multidisciplinary teams of specialty doctors, radiologists, medical and surgical oncologists, surgeons, and other care providers work together to develop the best treatment plan for every patient.

The Division of Nephrology at UI Health treats patients with conditions and diseases of the kidney, including end-stage renal disease (ESRD), kidney transplantation, acute kidney failure, kidney stones, and immunological kidney diseases.
