Every year, U.S. News & World Report publishes a "Best Hospitals" list, ranking the top 20 hospitals in the U.S., as well as hospitals that excel in 15 areas of complex specialty care. This year, Sarasota Memorial Hospital once again earned top marks on two specialty care lists, ranking No. 35 in the country for specialized rehabilitation of serious injuries and diseases and No. 35 for specialized urology care.

Sarasota Memorial also received 16 "high performer" ratings for specific and common procedures in Medicare patients, including gastrointestinal surgery, aortic valve surgery, COPD, colon cancer surgery, diabetes, heart attack and bypass surgery, hip replacement, kidney failure, lung cancer surgery and stroke.

"These rankings and ratings reflect our continuing focus on quality amid the pandemic," says Sarasota Memorial Hospital CEO David Verinder. "We are extremely grateful to our team of physicians, nurses and staff providing exceptional care to our patients."
