For the second straight year, Becker’s Hospital Review has named Nebraska Medicine, UNMC’s primary clinical partner, to its list of “100 Great Hospitals in America.”
The prestigious list includes some of the most prominent, forward-thinking and focused health care facilities in the nation.

Hospitals included on the list are home to many medical and scientific breakthroughs, provide best-in-class patient care and are stalwarts of their communities, serving as research hubs or local anchors of wellness. A version of this list has been published each year since 2011.
“It is a huge honor to again be included on this list,” said Rosanna Morris, interim Nebraska Medicine CEO. “Our health care professionals strive every day to provide serious medicine and extraordinary care to each of our patients. It’s gratifying to see that the work we’re doing here is being recognized and is paying off.”
To develop the list, Becker’s Hospital Review’s editorial team conducted research and evaluated reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, The Leapfrog Group and several other resources. The final result is a group of 100 hospitals that are leaders in their region, their state and the nation in terms of high-quality patient care.
“This is a testament to the extraordinary patient care we provide at Nebraska Medicine,” said Brad Britigan, M.D., Nebraska Medicine interim president and dean of the UNMC College of Medicine. “It’s also evidence that the cutting-edge treatment we provide is on par with what is being delivered at the most high-profile medical facilities in the country.”
