LLUMC Welcomes Several New Staffers

Six new physicians have been added to the staff.

You probably heard it in the news, but definitely worth repeating: Loma Linda University Medical Center is ranked the No. 1 hospital in the Inland Empire by the U.S. News & World Report 2011-12 Best Hospitals metro rankings.

Loma Linda University Medical Center received recognition for 10 specialties who were identified as “high performing.” That’s up from seven specialties last year. The “top performing” specialties are: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology; gynecology; nephrology; orthopedics; pulmonology; and urology.

Congratulations to the team for this well deserved recognition!
