Mayo Clinic earns top spot in hospital rankings
| STAT Morning Rounds – Mayo Clinic is again the No. 1 hospital in the country, according to the latest rankings from U.S. News & World Report that evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals. Here’s how some of the other hospitals stacked up:
Overall rankings: The Mayo Clinic placed first in this year’s honor roll, followed by Massachusetts General Hospital, and Johns Hopkins Hospital.
By specialty: The Mayo Clinic earned a top-five spot in 13 of the 16 specialties that were evaluated. The Cleveland Clinic was No. 1 for cardiology and heart surgery, while MD Anderson was ranked highest for cancer care.
- Methodology: The report evaluated measures including patient outcomes and nurse staffing. This year also included some changes — such as how well hospitals did in discharging patients to their homes — and so the report’s authors discourage comparing the latest rankings to previous years’.
