Watson Health 100 Top HospitalsTwo hospitals that are affiliated with University of Wisconsin Department of Family Medicine and Community Health’s (DFMCH) sponsored residency programs were recently ranked among the top 100 hospitals in the nation by IBM Watson Health, a health care analytics and artificial intelligence division of tech company IBM.

SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital-Madison, an educational site for the DFMCH’s Madison residency program, and Aspirus Wausau Hospital, the primary educational site for the DFMCH’s Wausau residency program, were both ranked in the teaching hospital category.

The rankings are out of 3,156 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals across the nation, scored on publicly available clinical, operational, and patient satisfaction metrics.

The DFMCH’S Madison residency program is also affiliated with UW Health University Hospital, which in 2018 was ranked as the top hospital in Wisconsin—and in the top 50 of 10 medical and surgical specialties—by U.S. News and World Report.
