Josehart, CEO of TIRR Memorial Hermann. “This acknowledgment is a testament to our long-term legacy of leading medical rehabilitation and research, and providing excellent care. It also demonstrates the continued innovation and dedication of our affiliated physicians and staff to advance the field of rehabilitation.”

For 2014-15, U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties and ranked the top 50 in most of the specialties. Just three percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed for Best Hospitals 2014-15 earned national ranking in even one specialty.

The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings.
