Northwestern Memorial's Urology Program Ranked 9th in Nation and Highest in Illinois and Chicago
“Being ranked as one of the ten best urology programs in the nation is a great honor and one that reflects the quality care we strive to provide,” said Anthony Schaeffer, MD, chair of the department of urology at Northwestern Memorial and professor of urology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “Our urologists and nurses work closely with patients to develop individualized care plans to provide them with the most effective treatment and compassionate care possible.”
Northwestern Memorial placed to 10th in the nation on the publisher’s most exclusive ranking: the Best Hospitals 2014-15 Honor Roll—the second, consecutive year in the Top 10, and third consecutive year on the Honor Roll. Northwestern Memorial is the only hospital in Illinois to make this prestigious ranking, and continues its place as the No. 1 in Illinois and the Chicago metro area, a distinction the hospital has held since U.S. News first introduced its state and local rankings three years ago. In all but two of the 14 specialties within which Northwestern is ranked, it ranks in the top 25 or higher—three of which are top 10.
Northwestern’s urologists offer comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care, including state-of-the-art diagnostic testing and treatment for conditions, including bladder disorders, erectile dysfunction, female urology, genitourinary cancer, interstitial cystitis, kidney and urinary tract disorders, male infertility, prostate diseases, stone disease, urologic cancers, urinary incontinence and urinary tract infections.
