University of Minnesota Medical Center is among the most prominent, forward-thinking and focused health care facilities in the nation.
That's according to Becker's Hospital Review, which recently named us among the "100 Great Hospitals in America."
According to Becker's Hospital Review, "Hospitals included on the list are home to many medical and scientific breakthroughs, provide best-in-class patient care and are stalwarts of their communities, serving as academic hubs or local mainstays."
Becker's editorial team named its top 100 after researching, considering nominations and evaluating reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics' 100 Top Hospitals, Healthgrades, Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, The Leapfrog Group and several other resources.
Becker's Hospital Review is a monthly publication offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems.

Minneapolis, MN -- (KARE) One of the saturated hills along the Mississippi River has collapsed Thursday night. It happened near the Fairview Riverside Hospital in Minneapolis.
Heavy rains created the mudslide that left about 6 to 8 feet of dirt and tree debris piled up on West River Parkway.
The first reports of the collapse began to come in just before 8 p.m. Thursday.
Officials say no one was hurt, but there are concerns the mudslide could threaten the buildings above.
About 20 workers in a nearby administrative building were evacuated as a precaution.
Authorities say no patients are affected.
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has declared a state of emergency in 35 counties because of flooding and storm damage.
