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.

The programs ranked by U.S. News & World Report in 2012 includes:

  • 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.
  • Diabetes and Endocrinology (No. 38) has been listed for the first time.
  • Ear, Nose and Throat (No. 20) has been listed four years in a row.

  • Geriatrics (No. 17) was previously listed in 2010.
  • Nephrology (kidney) (No.15) has been listed four years in a row.
  • Neurology and Neurosurgery (No. 22) has been listed for the first time.
  • Pulmonology (No. 15) has been listed for the third year in a row.
  • Urology (No. 45) was previously listed in 2010.
