The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has ranked among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for cranial neurosurgery in 2023.
The designation by Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients, reflects on UAMS’ trial outcomes for cranial neurosurgery and distinguishes UAMS as one of the nation’s leading hospitals for cranial neurosurgery, or brain surgery.
Last year, Healthgrades ranked UAMS in the top 10% of hospitals for cranial neurosurgery.
UAMS was also bestowed with a 2023 Cranial Neurosurgery Excellence Award for the second year in a row. The Specialty Excellence Awards recognize the top 10% of hospitals across the country in 17 specialty care areas. The hospital was also honored as a Five-Star Recipient for Cranial Neurosurgery and, for the second consecutive year, Treatment of Stroke.
“Achieving this award validates our efforts to make sure that Arkansans have access to the most up-to-date surgical technology and surgical options available for treatment of brain tumors, brain aneurysms, movement disorders and epilepsy,” said Dr. J.D. Day, chair of the UAMS Department of Neurosurgery.
Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 of the most common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals across the country to identify the top-performing hospitals for specialty care.
The ratings are independent and impartial. Hospitals can neither opt-in or opt-out of the ratings, nor can they submit their own data.
