Hershey Medical Center ranks among nation’s best hospitals for orthopedic care

U.S. News & World Report has listed Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical center as one of the best hospitals in the nation for 2020-21 in orthopedic care.

Hershey Medical Center is recognized as “high performing” in six additional specialties: gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and lung surgery and urology. Overall, U.S. News & World Report ranked the Medical Center the best hospital in the Harrisburg metro region, and the #4 hospital in Pennsylvania.

Hershey Medical Center provides patients across south central Pennsylvania and beyond with exceptional care for bone, joint and spine disorders. Specialists in the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation provide high-level care for all aspects of orthopaedic care, including joint reconstruction, musculoskeletal trauma, sports medicine, spinal disorders, hand surgery, soft tissue injuries and conditions and metabolic bone disease such as osteoporosis.

“I’m very proud that our department continues to be nationally recognized for exceptional clinical care,” said Dr. April Armstrong, acting chair of the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation. “We look forward to continuing our commitment to our patients through cutting-edge care, research and scientific discovery, and training the next generation of orthopaedic leaders.”

The U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings, now in their 31st year, help guide patients to hospitals that deliver outstanding care across 25 specialties, procedures and conditions.
