ANN ARBOR, Mich. – University of Michigan Health has been recognized as the top hospital in Michigan, according to U.S. News and World Report’s Best Hospitals Rankings for 2023-2024.

U-M Health was also the only hospital in the state named to the nation’s Honor Roll of hospitals, recognizing the institution for strong overall performance.

U-M Health is the clinical division of Michigan Medicine, the academic medical center of the University of Michigan.

“It’s an honor for U-M Health to receive continued recognition for our exceptional level of patient care,” said David Miller, M.D., M.P.H., president of the U-M Health System and executive vice dean for clinical affairs for the U-M Medical School.

“We are grateful for the hard work and commitment of our team members who make our patients a priority every single day.” 

U.S. News generates its rankings by evaluating data from 4,500 hospitals on four different categories, including patient experience, outcomes, care-related factors, and expert opinions from physician surveys. 

“These rankings are one measure of U-M Health’s dedication to delivering high-quality care to every patient who comes through our doors,” said Marschall S. Runge, M.D., Ph.D., dean of the U-M Medical School, CEO of Michigan Medicine and executive vice president of medical affairs for the University of Michigan.

“We are proud of our teams whose commitment to innovation and exemplary care helps earn this honor.”
