For the 18th consecutive year, Lehigh Valley Hospital has been ranked as one of the nation’s top hospitals in the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Hospital List.

The hospital was recognized for its cardiology and heart surgery, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, gynecology, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

The listing puts the hospital among the top 3 percent of leading hospitals in those categories.

In addition to the Best Hospitals national rankings, U.S. News cites only about 15 percent of hospitals as "high-performing" in regional markets around the country. Lehigh Valley Hospital and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg both were recognized among the Best Hospitals in Northeastern Pennsylvania/Lehigh Valley.

Lehigh Valley Hospital is cited as a high performer in cancer care; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; nephrology; and neurology and neurosurgery. Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg is listed as a high-performer in gastroenterology and GI surgery; geriatrics; neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics; pulmonology and urology.
