U.S. News has released its comprehensive rankings of the country's 4,852 hospitals, and some Denver-area hospitals performed quite well.
The magazine recognized hospitals for specialties in specific medical fields. Over 620 total hospitals were recognized for high performances in multiple specialties. Children's hospitals were not included in the rankings because there are too few of them nationally.
The Denver-area has three hospitals that have been nationally ranked by U.S. News, and 14 that were recognized for their high performance in various specialties.
