PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 17, 2012--Magee Rehabilitation Hospital has been ranked 16th in Rehabilitation in the U.S. News&World Report's annual Best Hospital rankings, released today. This year's Best Hospitals, the 23rd annual edition, showcases more than 720 of the nation's roughly 5,000 hospitals. Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is one of fewer than 150 hospitals to be nationally ranked in at least one of 16 medical specialties.

"We are both thrilled and humbled to once again be recognized as one of the country's Best Hospitals," said Jack Carroll, President and CEO of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. "At Magee, we have always strived to maintain a culture of excellence. Exceeding the safety, quality and outcome expectations of the patients and families we have the privilege to serve requires the best of the best in both clinical and support services personnel.  At Magee, that is accomplished by everyone always offering the difference that truly caring can make."

The hospital rankings, said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow, are like a GPS-type aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills in the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges. "All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care," said Comarow. "They are where other hospitals send the toughest cases."

The rankings were published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Highlights of the 2012-13 rankings will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2013 guidebook, to go on sale in August.

The complete rankings and methodology are available at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals.
