The magazine ranked UTMC as a high performer in six clinical specialties, as many as any institution in the area for 2013-14.

“U.S. News has recognized that The University of Toledo Medical Center offers patients superior care, a great experience and a higher degree of healing,” said Norma Tomlinson, UTMC executive director.

“Caring for patients is a team effort, and this is an accomplishment that the entire team should be proud of,” she said.

U.S. News listed UTMC as a high performer in:

• Geriatrics;

• Kidney disorders;

• Neurology and neurosurgery;

• Orthopedics;

• Pulmonology; and

• Urology.

“Hospitals across the nation look to America’s top tier academic health centers to set the standards for health care, and Toledo is no different. It is the blend of educational programs, innovative research and patient-centered clinical care that sets the stage for this recognition,” said Dr. Jeffrey P. Gold, chancellor, executive vice president for biosciences and health affairs, and dean of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences.

“This is one more example of the incredible momentum that our UT team has created. I want to thank and congratulate everyone who works so hard to provide this quality of health care, one patient at a time.”
