National Spotlight Shines on Medical Center

In addition to being named to U.S. News & World Report magazine’s “honor roll” of the nation’s best hospitals, Vanderbilt Medical Center and its ongoing efforts to improve quality of care and patient safety were the subject of a 12-page story in the magazine’s annual “America’s Best Hospitals” issue published in July.

The article, written in a time-stamp format, is prefaced with the headline “America’s Best Hospitals: Vanderbilt’s special mix of skill, passion and Southern comfort hits all the right notes in Nashville,” and opens with a two-page photo of LifeFlight offloading a patient.

The article is an account of events that happened during a six-day visit to Vanderbilt in June by U.S. News staff writers Sarah Baldauf and Lindsay Lyon and photographer Jim Lo Scalzo.
