KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Some big honors for The University of Kansas Hospital after a recent report listed the hospital as the best in Kansas City and in the state of Kansas.

U.S. News & World Report's national "Best Hospital" list ranked the hospital in 10 of 12 medical and surgical specialty areas. The hospital was listed in six specialty areas the past two years.

No other Kansas City-area hospital or Kansas hospital made any of the report's national adult lists.

"This is a tribute to the partnership between our physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers. You cannot get these results without all parties united in a single focus on quality patient care," said Bob Page, president and chief executive officer of The University of Kansas Hospital, in a written statement.

The University of Kansas Cancer Center was also just designated a National Cancer Institute.

  • Cancer (No. 37) has been listed two years in a row.
  • Cardiology and Heart Surgery (No. 24) has been listed six years in a row.
