It is ranked No. 5 in rehabilitation medicine, No. 7 in cancer care, and No. 12 in diabetes and endocrinology. The hospital was also named high performing the following adult procedures: heart bypass surgery, heart failure, colon cancer surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hip replacement knee replacement and lung cancer surgery. "Thank you to all our colleagues for the work they do every day on behalf of our patients, and for continually seeking new and innovative ways to deliver the best possible care close to home".

The media organization said its rankings should never be the sole basis for a medical decision but only one factor among many considerations. U.S. News said its rankings are not intended for routine procedures and conditions, but to help patients assess where they can get the best care for complicated diagnoses, such as pancreatic cancer or a heart valve replacement for an elderly patient with other complex health conditions. The rankings are produced by U.S. News with RTI International, Research Triangle Park, N.C.

It is ranked No. 1 in MI and No. 1 in the metro Detroit area.

All three are flagship hospitals within prestigious medical schools and part of large networks with regional hospitals, medical practices and diagnostic labs.

U.S. News used measures such as hospital survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing to rank hospitals. To provide the most accurate results, U.S. News combed through data for almost 5,000 hospitals.
