The Best Dermatology Hospitals

Updated April 17, 2017

Though many think of dermatology as a purely cosmetic field of medicine, there are a number of serious and debilitating diseases that require top-notch care from dermatologists and clinics that specialise in dermatological (skin) care. Some diseases treated by dermatologists include acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis and skin cancer. The best dermatology treatment centres offer top-of-the-line care for these conditions as well as less serious cosmetic issues, such as brown spots and caring for ageing skin.

New York-Presbyterian Hospital

New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center's Department of Dermatology touts its world-class medical team and its numerous outpatient services, including those that involve surgery. In addition to an array of procedures and treatments for numerous skin conditions (ranging from the common, such as acne, to the more serious, such as cancer), New York-Presbyterian's dermatology team is also known for working with the Sexually Transmitted Disease Unit at the hospital to treat skin-related STDs. In 2010, New York Magazine ranked NY-Presbyterian the No. 1 hospital in New York for the tenth straight year.
