John A. Moran Eye Center Ranked Among Top 10 Best Hospitals for Ophthalmology Nationwide

Top 10 card

The John A. Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah continues to rank among the nation’s Top 10 eye centers, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The Moran Eye Center ranked No. 10 in the magazine’s 2023-2024 Best Hospitals for Ophthalmology report. U.S. News & World Report bases its rankings on voting results asking ophthalmologists nationwide where they would send their patients with the most complex eye conditions. U.S. News & World Report says its Best Hospitals issue aims to help patients make crucial health care decisions. For ophthalmology, the magazine only publishes rankings for institutions that receive at least 5% of votes over a three-year period.

“This ranking marks the second year for our institution in the Top 10, and we’re in good company,” said Moran CEO and University of Utah Distinguished Professor Randall J Olson, MD. “It is our privilege to provide expert, specialized eye care for patients throughout the Mountain West.”
