UC Davis Medical Center among top 50 hospitals

UC Davis Medical Center ranks among the top 50 hospitals in America, according to an annual survey published in U.S. News & World Report. Out of more than 6,000 hospitals nationwide, the medical center was ranked 24th for ear, nose and throat; 32nd for orthopaedics; 38th for hormonal disorders, and 40th for cancer.

Only two other Northern California hospitals ranked in the top 50 for cancer: UCSF Medical Center and Stanford Hospital and Clinics. UC Davis Medical Center's nurse-patient ratio — 2.97 registered nurses per patient bed — led the charts in each of the four specialties.

UC Davis Medical Center also earned perfect scores in the U.S. News & World Report rankings for technology services in each of the specialty areas.
