|U.S. News & World Report has once again ranked MetroHealth one of the top hospitals in Northeast Ohio — and seventh in Ohio — while also naming its Diabetes and Endocrinology program 40th in the nation, according to the 2013-2014 Best Hospitals report.
In addition, U.S. News

“This latest ranking by U.S. News & World Report is evidence of what our staff and patients of MetroHealth have always known, that MetroHealth provides the highest quality care in many specialties,” said Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE, President and CEO of MetroHealth. “We look forward to achieving our vision of becoming the most admired public health system in the nation, renowned for our innovation, outcomes, service and financial strength. We are very proud of our clinical teams and congratulate them on their achievements.”
MetroHealth is renowned throughout the state and across the country for its research and advocacy in maternal-fetal medicine and trauma. The health system is expanding its focus on ambulatory care and is strategizing on new patient-centric approaches to care.

Just 3 percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in at least one of 16 medical specialties.
