HUP Named Top Local Hospital by U.S. News

But the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania wasn’t the top one in the state.

U.S. News and World Report recently ranked hospitals in the Philadelphia region and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania took the top spot. Jefferson was second, and Christiana Care hospital in Newark, Delaware, was third. HUP’s data also includes Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.

Penn was nationally ranked in 13 different disciplines, including a No. 3 ranking in Ear, Nose & Throat. (Fun national ranking fact: In 1947, Penn finished the season ranked No. 7 in football.)


Rounding out the top 5 are Hahnemann and Lankenau in Wynnewood tied at No. 4. Center City hospitals also in the top 10 include Pennsylvania Hospital (No. 6) and Wills Eye Hospital (No.9, and second in the nation in ophthalmology to a hospital in Miami).

The University of Pittsburgh medical center was ranked tops in Pennsylvania. HUP was No. 2.
