The Best in Kentucky. The Best for Kentucky.

At UK HealthCare, we’re dedicated to one mission: helping Kentucky get healthier. It’s what drives our research, our outreach, and our expert care. It’s why we’ve been ranked Kentucky’s #1 hospital for the fifth year in a row by U.S. News Best Hospitals, with a cancer center that’s among the top 30 in the nation.

For the past five years and more, Kentuckians have come to us when it matters most. We’ll continue to provide the best, most advanced care possible to help Kentuckians get healthy and stay healthy. That’s what drives us, every day.

What our rankings mean

Each year, people across Kentucky experience illness or injury and don’t know where to turn for surgery or specialized care. U.S. News & World Report takes the guesswork out of finding expert medical care by evaluating more than 4,500 medical centers throughout the nation in 16 specialties and 10 procedures and conditions. Using patient outcome and care-related factors, such as patient safety and nurse staffing, that data is compiled into U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals rankings.
