July 25, 2015 | AURORA, Colorado

The complete U.S. News & World Report Best Hospital 2015-2016 rankings are out, and CU Orthopedics continues to top the list. There is no better place in Colorado for you or your family to receive health care.

Adult orthopedic care

University of Colorado HospitalThe orthopedics program at University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) is #25 in the country—up from #45 last year. That's the highest ranking in the state of Colorado.

Not only that, but UCH is the best hospital in the state, with national rankings in 11 specialties.

To get these results, U.S. News sifted through data for nearly 5,000 hospitals and results from surveys of more than 140,000 physicians to rank the best centers in 16 adult specialties. Death rates, patient safety, and hospital reputation were a few of the many factors considered. Only 137 hospitals were nationally ranked in a specialty. 

Pediatric orthopedic care

Children's Hospital ColoradoThe Orthopedics Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado is #7 in the country for pediatric orthopedics, the highest ranking in Colorado.

Also, Children's Hospital Colorado ranks #5 in the country for children's hospitals.

To get these results, U.S. News gathered clinical data from 184 pediatric centers through a detailed survey. In addition, part of each hospital's score was derived from surveys in 2013, 2014, and 2015 of more than 10,000 pediatric specialists who were asked where they would send the sickest children in their specialty. Of the 109 centers providing enough clinical information to be evaluated, 83 were ranked in at least one specialty. Twelve hospitals garnered high scores in three or more specialties and were named to the Honor Roll.
