Best hospitals in the US

Your local hospital may be equipped to handle general conditions and emergencies, but if you or anyone in your family is suffering from a specific disease or disorder, finding a hospital that specializes in that particular condition can mean more accurate diagnostic results and better odds of a successful treatment plan. Here is a list of the nation’s top 10 hospitals by specialty.

10. Best hospital for Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL


The US Department of Commerce estimates that approximately 5.8 million adults in the US live with disabilities as the result of a stroke. Furthermore, approximately 1.4 million individuals suffer from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually and another 12,000 will have a traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI).

Since 1991, the US News & World Report has ranked the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago as one of the best hospitals specializing in rehabilitation. The hospital was founded in 1954 and has earned its solid reputation with its commitment to patient care, research, and education in the field of rehabilitation. The institute is home to the Searle Rehabilitation Research Center, one the largest research facilities in the world specializing in rehabilitation and currently involved in over 200 research projects.

The hospital offers a number of targeted centers and programs including Brain Injury Medicine and Rehabilitation Program, Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program, Stroke Injury Rehabilitation Care, RIC Amputee Clinic, Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Program and many more. It also offers a full-day Chronic Pain Management Program for patients suffering from neck and back pain, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, neuropathic pain and chronic headaches.

Though you may not want to think about needing a specialized hospital for a disease or disorder, keep these hospitals in mind in the case that the need arises.
