Transplant Center Recognition
The Nebraska Medical Center and a large number of our physicians have recently been recognized by two national publications for the first-rate quality provided to our patients.
The Nebraska Medical Center Named to List of 100 Great Hospitals In America
Becker's Hospital Review has published the 2014 edition of "100 Great Hospitals in America," a compilation of some of the most prominent, forward-thinking and focused health care facilities in the nation. For the first time, The Nebraska Medical Center is on the list – a list that includes the Mayo Clinic, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Cleveland Clinic, among others. The Nebraska Medical Center is the only hospital in Nebraska on the list.
"To be named to this list is quite an honor," says Bill Dinsmoor, CEO of the clinical enterprise. "It's an indication of the direction in which this organization is headed and something all of our colleagues should be extremely proud of."
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 academic hubs or local mainstays.
"We've always believed those aforementioned qualities describe this medical center perfectly," says Brad Britigan, MD, president of the clinical enterprise. "To have tangible proof of this from an independent organization that is so highly thought of in the health care industry like Becker's, makes being named to this list extremely significant."
To develop the list, Becker's Hospital Review's editorial team conducted research, considered nominations and evaluated reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics' 100 Top Hospitals, Healthgrades, Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, The Leapfrog Group and several other resources.

181 of Our Physicians Recognized Among Best
A total of 181 physicians who practice at The Nebraska Medical Center have been recognized on this year's list of Best Doctors in America®. The doctors include private practice physicians as well as full and part-time faculty at UNMC who are also affiliated with UNMC Physicians, the UNMC faculty physician group.
The list of physicians was excerpted from the Best Doctors in America® 2013-2014 database of more than 45,000 doctors in the United States. Physicians are selected on the basis of the question, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?" A peer-review survey by thousands of doctors determines the doctors included in the database. Only those doctors who earn the consensus support of their peers are included and only physicians in the Best Doctors database are allowed to receive the survey, nominate others and vote.
Best Doctors in America® was founded in 1989 by two physicians affiliated with Harvard Medical School and is today a leading resource to those seeking medical advice and information. The Nebraska Medical Center physicians and their specialty featured in the 2013-2014 database are identified here.
