North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley and University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora, part of the University of Colorado Health network, were both named to the list of best teaching hospitals. The hospitals are not ranked within the list.
Rose Medical Center in Denver and Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs were the only other Colorado hospitals recognized on the list.
The data for the list comes from public information, including Medicare cost reports. Hospitals are evaluated on 10 criteria, including mortality rates, patient safety, patient satisfaction and medical complications.
The list is compiled by the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based company, formerly the health-care business of Thomson Reuters.
