“This outstanding recognition represents the tireless efforts of a unified team that is dedicated to delivering the best possible care to patients and their families,” said Patty Maysent, CEO, UC San Diego Health. “Every team member contributes to our high-quality, high-value care — from surgeons and appointment schedulers to parking attendants and administrators.”

According to Becker’s, the list represents hospitals with a strong history of medical innovation, top-notch care for patients, or clinical advancements with forward-thinking research. As the region’s only academic health system, UC San Diego Health is uniquely poised to translate science into lifesaving diagnostics and care.

In 2016, Healthgrades awarded UC San Diego Health its Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence, placing it among the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals delivering superior care to the Medicare population based on clinical outcomes. Additionally, both UC San Diego Health campuses recently received a hospital safety score of A, the highest level of recognition from the Leapfrog Group.

In 2015, U.S. News & World Report ranked UC San Diego Health in 12 of 16 adult specialties, placing it among the top 50 hospitals nationally. In the same year, UC San Diego Health was named one of the nation’s top 100 Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics. Out of nearly 3,000 hospitals, the study identified the top hospitals that score highest on patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability.

UC San Diego Health is recognized locally and nationally for its commitment to the community, groundbreaking research and training of next-generation physician-scientists. In late 2016, UC San Diego Health will open Jacobs Medical Center, a 245-bed technologically-advanced hospital dedicated to the personalized, comprehensive care of patients who are in need of leading-edge medical and surgical care from university experts.
