Angelenos can sleep a little easier at night, knowing that the best non-university hospital in Southern California stands in their own backyard.

For the second year in a row, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center topped the list of non-university Southern California hospitals, according to a U.S. News & World survey. The 10th annual guide to "America's Best Hospitals," featured in U.S. News & World's July 19 issue, also ranked the Beverly Hills-adjacent facility 12th in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery.

Cedars-Sinai was among 188 of the country's top hospitals to make the guide, selected from 1,881 of the nation's 6,299 hospitals that met U.S. News & Report's initial criteria.

Naturally, Cedar-Sinai's administrators were delighted with the attention given by the magazine. Said Thomas M. Priselac, Cedars-Sinai's president and CEO: "We are honored and pleased by this recognition. Clearly, Cedars-Sinai's dedication to an educational mission and to highly sophisticated pre-clinical and clinical research ...played a key role in our being so well placed in the best-hospital rankings." -- Michael Aushenker, Staff Writer


Overall, Cedars-Sinai ranked highly in nine of 16 categories in the guide:

Cardiology and

&'009;Heart Surgery (12th)

Gynecology (19th),

Digestive Tract (26th),

Respiratory Disorders (27th),

Rheumatology (28th),

Geriatrics (28th),

Neurology and

&'009;Neurosurgery (31st),

Ear, Nose and Throat (38th).
