Becker's Hospital Review ranks UC San Diego Medical Center
among "100 Great Hospitals."

Becker’s created the list through original research, nominations and evaluations of reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics' 100 Top Hospitals, Healthgrades, The Leapfrog Group and Magnet designations by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. In recent years, UC San Diego Medical Center and the UC San Diego Health System have repeatedly been cited by these groups and others.

“We are thrilled to be among some of the finest and most distinguished hospitals in the country,” said Paul Viviano, CEO, UC San Diego Health System. “The Becker’s listing represents the absolute and continuing commitment of the UC San Diego Health System to unsurpassed health care that is both comprehensive and specialized.” 

The Medical Center in Hillcrest is part of the UC San Diego Health System, which also includes UC San Diego Thornton Hospital, UC San Diego Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center, UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, UC San Diego Shiley Eye Center and several community clinics. In 2016, the 10-story, 245-bed Jacobs Medical Center is slated to open on the east campus of UC San Diego in La Jolla.  

Earlier this year, Becker’s ranked UC San Diego Medical Center one of “100 hospitals with great women’s health programs” for its innovative care and advanced treatment options in obstetrics and gynecology.
