Kentucky's best hospital

What it means to be Kentucky’s best hospital

We’re no stranger to No. 1 rankings at the University of Kentucky. Last week, we added another first-place finish to our resume – UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital was named Kentucky’s best hospital in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospital rankings.

This is a tremendous honor for all of us here at UK HealthCare, but we’re most proud of what it means for our patients. Being ranked as the top hospital in Kentucky is further proof that when you come to UK HealthCare, you can feel confident you’re in good hands. Our goal is not to win awards; it’s to deliver the highest-quality care to every patient, every day.

UK HealthCare is Kentucky’s No. 1 hospital. But we’re so much more than that.

We are 9,000 people – physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals – all dedicated to providing the most advanced, most effective care available, not just in Kentucky but anywhere.

We are physicians and other medical professionals trained in the most sophisticated, most up-to-the-minute medical techniques so that no Kentuckian, no matter how sick they are or how rare their illness, needs to go far from home for the treatment they need.

We are a Level 1 trauma center, ready every minute of every day to treat even the most serious injuries when they come through the door. And a Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, caring for the tiniest and sickest newborns – and giving them a chance not just to live, but to live normal, productive, happy lives.

We are nurses providing care for every patient, every time that’s so good it has received Magnet status, the highest recognition available in the nursing field.

We are educators in our six health professions colleges teaching the next generations of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, spreading the highest standards of care like ripples to the future.

We are researchers working to discover treatments and cures not yet even imagined.

And we are a network of partnerships and outreach locations throughout the state, so that world-class care is always close to home.

UK HealthCare is the power of advanced medicine.

And all of that power is here for you.
