Overall, eleven specialties at UNC Hospitals were recognized as nationally ranked or high performing by U.S. News & World Report in its annual "America's Best Hospitals" issue.

Three UNC Health Care specialties were ranked in the top 50 of the 2012 U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” issue:

  • Gynecology - #34
  • Ear, Nose & Throat - #42
  • Cancer, #43

Additionally, the following specialty areas at UNC Hospitals were designated by U.S. News as “high performing,” representing the top 25 percent of hospitals in their specialty nationally.

  • Cardiology & Heart Surgery
  • Diabetes & Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Geriatrics
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology & Neurosurgery
  • Pulmonology
