UF Health Jacksonville has been recognized for high performance in three specialties and for the care of patients in two key areas in the latest U.S. News & World Report comparison of hospitals across the nation.

Highlighting the organization’s achievements are three high-performing specialties: diabetes and endocrinology, nephrology and orthopedics.

UF Health Jacksonville was also singled out in the report as high-performing for the treatment of two conditions: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, and heart failure.

“This is another great reminder to our staff and the community that the work we are doing here every day is paying off,” said Leon L. Haley, M.D., MHSA, CEO of UF Health Jacksonville and dean of the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. “Our focus is simply to provide the best possible service to our patients in the most compassionate way, and it’s great to see U.S. News recognizing those goals.”

UF Health Jacksonville was also recognized as a “Best Hospital” in North Florida and the 22nd best hospital in Florida, an improvement from No. 23 in 2017.

“Whether it’s this national publication or others like the Vizient rankings of academic medical centers in the U.S., where we have shown great improvement, our objective is to continue to get better, to aim for the top of these charts,” Haley said. “And the data show that’s happening. It’s a reflection of the passion of our staff to always improve.”
