U.S. News and World Report has announced its 2018-19 list of best hospitals. Vanderbilt University Medical Center not only made the list but also has landed on the 2018-19 Best Hospital Honor Roll alongside the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins and others. Vanderbilt came in at #17 in the top 20 hospitals in the nation. On a statewide basis, Vanderbilt was ranked number one. Saint Thomas West Hospital was ranked fourth in the state and noted as 'high performing' in six procedures/conditions. TriStar Centennial Medical Center tied for #5 in the state and was recognized as 'high performing' in five procedures/conditions. Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital rounded out the state's top 10 with a designation of 'high performing' in three procedures/conditions.
