Cedars-Sinai also ranked No. 3 in the state, with UCLA Medical Center ranking first and UC San Francisco Medical Center ranking second.
The U.S. News rankings are based on numerous measures, including patient outcomes, patient experience, technology and reputation (according to surveyed physicians).

Cedars ranked in the top 10 in the U.S. in cardiology and heart surgery, gastroenterology and GI surgery, gynecology, nephrology, orthopaedics and pulmonology.

“The U.S. News rankings are a public recognition of the dedication our staff brings to our patients every day and a reflection of our contributions to advancing the science of medicine and healthcare delivery,” said Cedars-Sinai president and CEO Thomas M. Priselac. “We are proud of these results and remain committed to expanding our research, education and support in our community.”
