For the sixth year in a row, U-W Hospital in Madison is rated as Wisconsin's best.
The annual ranking from U-S News and World Report puts Aurora/Saint Luke's Medical Center in Milwaukee second, Froedtert (fray dert) in Wauwatosa third, Aspirus (as pie'rus) Wausau Hospital fourth, and Saint Mary's in Madison fifth. U-W ranks among the country's best in nine adult categories of care and seven pediatric specialities -- but again this year, no Wisconsin based hospitals are among the 20 making the U-S News Honor Roll for high quality care in a variety of fields. The Mayo Clinic tops the Honor Roll for the second straight year. It's based in Rochester, Minnesota with hospitals and clinics in Eau Claire, La Crosse, and 15 other Wisconsin communities.
