Mass. General ranked fourth best hospital in the nation

US News & World Report ranks Wake Baptist No. 2 in state

"Covering almost every hospital in every U.S. community, U.S. News offers deep, rich data that patients can use to help them make informed decisions about where to receive surgical or medical treatment", said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News.

In a news release late Monday night, Mayo Clinic CEO Dr. John Noseworthy said, "Mayo Clinic is consistently top ranked nationwide more often than any other hospital because of the thousands of people here who shared a vision".

U.S. News gave United Kingdom "high-performing" marks in gastroenterology, nephrology, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

The health system earned national accolades in 15 of the ranking's 16 areas of medical specialties.

Two Northeast Ohio hospital systems have been recognized as two of the best hospitals in the nation according to a U.S. News and World Report study.

In Florida, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville retained its statewide first-place ranking from past year, while Tampa General Hospital rose one rank to second place and UF Health Shands Hospital dropped two ranks to third place. A national ranking means a hospital specialty ranks in the top 50 out of more than 4,500 rated hospitals.

In addition to quality measures, U.S. News also rates hospitals based on reputation, which is one of the biggest criticisms of the report.




Aurora Medical Center in Grafton was ranked No. 3 in the metro Milwaukee area and tied for No. 6 in Wisconsin, with two high-performing specialties, orthopedics and urology.

In June, the American Hospital Association sent a letter to CMS Administrator Seema Verma urging her to suspend its star rating program, saying it oversimplifies complex data and penalizes teaching hospitals and centers with higher volumes of poorer patients. It includes touting marketing opportunities for hospitals with the rankings, including buying the right to use the Best Hospital logo in advertising and to be listed among the magazine's featured hospitals.

Earlier this year, University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers earned Magnet status designation.

“However, the credit goes to our employees, both on the front lines and behind the scenes, it is their compassion and hard work every day which creates the exceptional care we provide.”. Mott was ranked No. 1 in MI and was the only hospital in the state ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties.

This is the third straight year - and the 13th time in 16 years - that MD Anderson has ranked first.

"Hopefully next year we'll be five out of five for those high performing conditions as well as we hope to move up the rank even further within the state of Minnesota", he said.
