VUMC Moves Up a Spot on Nation’s ‘Honor Roll’ of Finest Hospitals

Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) has again been named to the Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report in the publication’s 2022–2023 ranking of health care facilities. VUMC is No. 1 in Tennessee, No. 1 in the Metro Nashville area and the only health system in the Southeast to be named to this year’s Honor Roll.

U.S. News uses structural measures and peer reputational scores to rank hospitals. This year, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals, and only 164 were nationally ranked in one medical specialty or more. Only 20 hospitals earned Honor Roll status in this year’s ranking.

In addition to inclusion in the Honor Roll, VUMC was nationally ranked in nine data-driven nationally ranked specialties — Cancer, Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Ear, Nose & Throat, Gastroenterology and GI Surgery, Geriatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pulmonology and Lung Surgery and Urology.

“Our ongoing commitment to placing patients first serves as the foundation for continued success with rankings such as this. I want to express my appreciation for these strong results and congratulate our physicians, nurses and staff for keeping the Medical Center ranked No. 1 in Tennessee,” said C. Wright Pinson, MBA, MD, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Health System Officer for VUMC.
