The 2022-2023 U.S. News & World Report's best hospitals survey has ranked UF Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute #26 among the nation's top providers for orthopaedic care. This year's report once again ranked the University of Florida Health Shands Hospital as the most nationally recognized adult and pediatric specialties among Florida hospitals. The analysis of more than 4,500 adult hospitals again puts UF Health in elite company with health systems nationwide that are ranked in medical specialties.
The orthopaedics ranking is the highest ever for the department, which has now been either nationally ranked or high performing for nine consecutive years. Orthopaedics rose in the rankings partly due to significant improvements in discharging patients to their homes rather than a rehabilitation facility. That effort and others are now producing positive benefits for patients, said Mark T. Scarborough, M.D., a professor and chair of the College of Medicine’s department of orthopaedics and sports medicine.
The department has improved its outcomes for knee replacements, hip fractures, hip replacements, Scarborough said. It did so while also enhancing access to care, boosting patient satisfaction scores and seeing more patients, he noted. As a growing department, orthopaedics now has eight divisions with expertise in many specialties.
"We have continued to build the depth and breadth of our faculty and staff. Our strong clinical care is now complemented by significant research and educational programs," Scarborough said.
