Regional leadership

U.S. News & World Report recognized The University of Kansas Health System as high performing in 6 types of careSince 1990, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the nation's top hospitals by specialty. More recently, the organization added recognition for high-performing hospitals in metropolitan areas with populations exceeding 1 million.

The University of Kansas Hospital again ranked as the top hospital in Kansas City and in Kansas in the 2018-19 report.

In addition, complementing our recognition on the national stage, we excelled regionally, earning accolades as a high-performing hospital in these care types:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
  • Colon cancer surgery
  • Heart bypass surgery
  • Heart failure
  • Lung cancer surgery
  • Orthopedics

These rankings use the same scoring methods as used in the national rankings.

We are proud of our performance, as it underscores our commitment to patients to provide world-class care close to home.
