"To again be named the best hospital in the state is a testament to the people who work for this organization and their continued dedication and passion," said Dan DeBehenke, MD, MBA, CEO of Nebraska Medicine. "This award is a tangible reflection of the serious medicine and extraordinary care provided to our patients on a daily basis."

The U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 27th year, help guide patients to hospitals that deliver outstanding care across 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. The Best Hospitals methodologies include objective measures such as patient survival, the number of times a given procedure is performed, infection rates, adequacy of nurse staffing and more.
