U.S. News & World Report once again named the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center to its Honor Roll of Best Hospitals nationally, ranking number one in Philadelphia and number two Pennsylvania, out of the nearly 5000 hospitals rated. The Department of Medicine was specifically honored as well, with many of our divisions ranked highly by U.S. News: oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology are listed among the top 20 in the nation, while geriatrics, nephrology and pulmonology are among the nation's leaders.
In addition, Medicare's Hospital Compare listed Penn Presbyterian Medical Center as the only five star hospital in Philadelphia, and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania as one of only two four star hospitals in Philadelphia. Moreover, all of the Department's general internal medicine and geriatrics primary care clinics participate in Medicare's Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program, a national advanced primary care model designed to strengthen primary care through care delivery transformation. These are just a few examples of how Department of Medicine clinicians have been recognized for their commitment to patient care quality and safety. We publish patient ratings and reviews for all of our clinicians as one of many initiatives to improve the care and experience of our patients.
