Lastly, we were recognized as a high-performing hospital in five specialties, procedures and conditions in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals survey for 2020-21, including a Top 50 national ranking in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The nephrology and endocrinology programs were also listed among the country’s Top 100 and we were singled out for high performance in the specialties of gastroenterology/gastroenterology surgery and urology, and in the patient care procedures/conditions of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, and heart failure.
We are also proud to be part of the larger UF Health system, which is collectively on the rise. UF Health Shands Hospital emerged as Florida’s top health center and one of the nation’s elite in the U.S. News & World Report’s survey, with nine medical specialties placing in the nation’s Top 50 — more than any other hospital in the Sunshine State.
All of this demonstrates that even during a pandemic, we continue to provide exceptional care, grow our enterprise and fulfill our vision to be the region’s most valued health care asset.
I know this has not been an easy year, so thank you again for your hard work and continued perseverance and resilience.
