U.S. News and World Report rates the University of Michigan Hospital and Health Center in Ann Arbor as the best in the state, followed by Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak and Harper University Hospital in Detroit.

Beaumont’s Executive Vice President Dr. Ananias Diokno says the ranking is due to Beaumont’s highly qualified staff.

“We just don’t accept anybody who’s an M.D. or a D.O. but rather we put them in a very stringent qualifications to get them accepted as a Beaumont doctor.”

Diokno says the report bases its findings on the quality and safety of a hospital’s clinical programs, the services it offers and its reputation. He says hospitals also use the rankings to assess where improvements need to be made.
