Loyola's Cardiology and Heart Surgery program is the only cardiology program in Chicago to be nationally ranked for 12 years in a row. Only three percent of hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty.

Eight Loyola specialties are high-performing, meaning they are among the top 25 percent of hospitals in these specialties. They are diabetes and endocrinology; gastroenterology and GI surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; orthopedics; and pulmonology.

Gottlieb Memorial Hospital, a member of Loyola University Health System, has four high performing specialties in the new rankings: geriatrics, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics and urology.

U.S. News & World Report's rankings incorporate measures such as patient survival, safety data and nurse staffing levels. The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metropolitan rankings.

The rankings are available at health.usnews.com/best-hospitals and will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2015 guidebook, available in August.
