Hundreds of Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) physicians are named among the nation’s top health care providers by Best Doctors in America, a biennial listing of physicians who are peer selected for inclusion.
The 2015-2016 list of 459 total Tennessee physicians includes 277 physicians who practice at Vanderbilt University Hospital, The Vanderbilt Clinic, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital, Vanderbilt Stallworth Rehabilitation Hospital, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks and other offsite facilities.
This list of Best Doctors in America is an acknowledgment of the talent, skill and dedication of the Medical Center’s faculty, said C. Wright Pinson, MBA, M.D., Deputy CEO and Chief Health Systems Officer for VUMC.
“I am incredibly proud of our physicians for these accolades. Their commitment to the health and well-being of our patients is a cornerstone of our success. I want to congratulate those named to this list and the many other members of our team who are responsible every day for the outstanding care our patients receive,” Pinson said.
The Best Doctors in America List, assembled by Best Doctors Inc. and audited and certified by Gallup, results from polling of more than 40,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors in more than 40 specialties and 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this list.
In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors Inc. evaluates the review results and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.
