It’s no secret that all hospitals are not equal

Sierra Tucson, a premier, multi-licensed treatment center dedicated to the prevention, education and treatment of addictions and behavioral disorders, has been recommended in U.S. News & World Report’s 2010 list of America’s Best Hospitals for Psychiatry.

The nation’s leading source of rankings evaluated 4,852 hospitals to determine the best in 16 adult specialties from cancer to urology. Ranking for the psychiatry specialty was based solely on reputation, derived from the facilities’ most recent physician surveys.

“It’s no secret that all hospitals are not equal,” said U.S. News’ Avery Comarow. “That is why U.S. News has published the Best Hospitals rankings for 21 years: to help guide patients who need an unusually high level of hospital expertise.”

Adds Comarow, “The special quality shared by [those] that made it into the new 2010-11 Best Hospitals… is their ability to take on and meet the most difficult challenges.”

Sierra Tucson recently celebrated 26 years of compassionate care and clinical excellence. Internationally renowned for its effective therapies, extraordinary staff, and exceptional setting, Sierra Tucson provides advanced integrated treatment to identify and resolve patients’ underlying issues.
