U.S. News & World Report has ranked Scripps Health’s orthopedics program the best in the San Diego region and named Scripps among the nation’s best in five specialties in the magazine’s annual “Best Hospitals” list.

The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in its 34th year, recognize the nation’s top 50 hospitals that excel in treating patients with the most challenging healthcare needs. U.S. News evaluates hospitals in 15 adult specialties and 22 common procedures and conditions in order to determine the ranking. Of the more than 4,500 hospitals evaluated this year, only 164 hospitals ranked in at least one of the specialties.

The combined programs of Scripps Green Hospital and Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, listed by the magazine as “Scripps La Jolla Hospitals”, are among the nation’s top 50 hospitals in: 

  • Orthopedics (No.16)
  • Cardiology (No. 24)
  • Obstetrics and Gynecology (No. 35)
  • Gastroenterology and GI Surgery (No. 37)
  • Geriatrics (No. 39)

“Despite the headwinds and challenges that hospitals continue to face in this post-pandemic world amid economic turmoil, Scripps continues to deliver exceptional care to our patients who benefit every day from outstanding nationally ranked programs,” said Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder. “I am proud of the outstanding hard work, focus and dedication of our physicians, nurses and the rest of our staff that made these rankings possible.”
