Newswise — With four nationally ranked specialties, Loyola University Medical Center ranks 3rd in Illinois in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014-15 Best Hospital rankings.

Loyola’s four specialties that are ranked among the top 50 in the country are Ear, Nose and Throat, 25th; Cardiology & Heart Surgery, 29th; Urology, 39th; and Cancer, 47th. Loyola’s Cardiology and Heart Surgery program is the only cardiology program in Chicago to be nationally ranked for 12 years in a row. Only three percent of hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty.

Eight Loyola specialties are high-performing, meaning they are among the top 25 percent of hospitals in these specialties. They are Diabetes & Endocrinology; Gastroenterology & GI Surgery; Geriatrics; Gynecology; Nephrology; Neurology & Neurosurgery; Orthopaedics; and Pulmonology.

Gottlieb Memorial Hospital has four high performing specialties in the new rankings: Geriatrics, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Orthopaedics and Urology. Gottlieb is a member of Loyola University Health System.

U.S. News & World Report’s rankings incorporate measures such as patient survival, safety data and nurse staffing levels. The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metropolitan rankings.

The rankings are available at and will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2015 guidebook, available in August.
