Ranked: The 10 Best Hospitals In Metro Detroit

Play episode

Detroit’s health care industry is growing, and three Michigan hospitals – Beaumont Health, the Henry Ford Health System, and the University of Michigan hospital – have been named a “best hospital” by U.S. News and World Report. But what and where are the best hospitals in Metro Detroit?

The rankings included an analysis of 5,000 medical centers and their specialities around the United States, so inclusion on this list is a notable accomplishment. Here are the top 10 hospitals in Metro Detroit (and they include Ann Arbor and Flint in their definition of the Detroit Metro Area).

Hospitals are ordered according to their performance in medical specialties like cancer and in common procedures and conditions like knee replacement and heart failure. The bottom two on the list were a tie for the number nine slot. We also included a map above of where those 10 best hospitals are.
