The Rocky Mountain Region's Top Teaching Hospital

This is the last of a series of blog posts over the past few weeks devoted to top teaching hospitals by region.  We have identified the top 5 teaching hospitals in each region from the 137 hospitals in the U.S. that earned national distinction in at least one of the 16 adult specialties studied  in the most recent U.S. News & World Report rankings of American hospitals. As the least populated region of the country, the Rocky Mountain region poses a problem for our top 5 teaching hospitals by region series.  The Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems, which is part of the Association of American Medical Colleges, lists only three teaching hospital members in the region..  And of those Rocky Mountain teaching hospitals, only one earned national recognition in at least one of the adult specialties covered in the U.S. News survey:
