UK HealthCare Rankings


Caring for the patients of the Commonwealth is UK HealthCare’s greatest priority.

Like many academic medical centers, UK HealthCare serves a disproportionate number of patients with complex medical needs which is not accurately represented by Leapfrog. UK HealthCare works with a number of organizations such as US News & World Report and Vizient where we are a top performer and academic medical centers are more appropriately compared providing better information for our patients and families.

The quality of care and safety of our patients is of utmost importance at UK HealthCare and we continue to invest in substantial resources to continually improve in these areas. Additionally, we are proud to be ranked the #1 hospital in Kentucky by US News & World Report for four years in a row.
