Penn Medicine's history of patient care began more than two centuries ago with the founding of the nation’s first hospital, Pennsylvania Hospital, in 1751 and the nation's first medical school at the University of Pennsylvania in 1765. Penn Medicine has pioneered medical frontiers with a staff comprised of innovators who have dedicated their lives to advancing medicine through excellence in education, research and patient care. Penn Medicine is consistently recognized nationally and internationally for excellence in health care. The cornerstone of the reputation is the medical and support staff, who choose to dedicate their careers to serving the needs of our patients and community. The Penn Medicine hospital network, including the Hospitals of the University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH), and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center (PPMC) are proud to once again be ranked among the top hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report’s 2018-2019 Honor Roll of Best Hospitals.
