UF Health Shands Hospital ranked best in Florida in 2020-21 U.S. News “Best Hospitals” survey

UF Health Shands Hospital placed a remarkable nine specialties in the Top 50 of U.S. News & World Report’s 2020-21 Best Hospitals, a feat seldom achieved by the vast majority of the 5,000 hospitals around the nation analyzed in the annual U.S. News report.

No other hospital in Florida placed as many medical specialties in the Top 50 nationally, underlining our position as the leader in Florida health care.

Neurology and neurosurgery were rated a “high-performing” specialty, which means it ranked in the top 10% of all hospitals scored in that specialty across the United States.

These rankings are a reflection of how our employees are entirely focused on giving their best every day to meet the needs of our patients. It is teamwork and this commitment to excellence that brings such national recognition to UF Health’s premier clinical care, education and research programs.

We applaud you for the great efforts all of you — faculty, staff, housestaff and students — are contributing as we continue to move medicine forward.

Thank you for all you do to make a true difference in people’s lives!
