UC San Diego, Scripps again top U.S News list
San Diego Union-Tribune

UC San Diego’s quality in a dozen hospital specialties ranks among the 50 best in the nation, according to the latest “Best Hospitals” evaluation by U.S. News & World Report.

Released today, the closely followed health care compendium also bestows eight national rankings to the combined programs of Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and Scripps Green Hospital.

While health quality experts are quick to note that such rankings should not be consumers’ only factor in deciding where to receive care, the results do bring a certain cachet that can help influence doctor referral patterns and make it easier for top performers to recruit new talent.
