Keck Medical Center of USC has once again been recognized as one of the nation’s best hospitals.
The medical center, which includes Keck Hospital of USC and USC Norris Cancer Hospital, placed among the top 50 nationwide in eight specialties in the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals rankings for 2022-23.
The placements include two specialties in the top 10: Gastroenterology and GI surgery at No. 6 and Urology at No. 8. Both specialties, plus Cancer and Orthopedics, rose significantly since last year.
