A recent ranking of health care facilities placed two St. David's HealthCare facilities among the top in the country for rehabilitation services.

St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, located at 12221 N. MoPac, Austin, was one of 50 hospitals nationwide to be named as U.S. News & World Report’s 2021-22 Best Hospitals for rehabilitation.


The North Austin hospital ranked 47th in the nation for rehabilitation. One other St. David’s facility—St. David’s Medical Center—also made the top 50 rehabilitation hospitals in the U.S. list. The Central Austin medical campus, which includes the St. David’s Rehabilitation Hospital, ranked 33rd for rehabilitation services.

U.S. News & World Report every year evaluates more than 4,750 hospitals for its Best Hospitals reports, which name the 50 best hospitals for multiple specialties such as cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, psychiatry and more. The rankings are established based on multiple measures such as quality of nursing, total volume, risk-adjusted survival and other indicators.
