Today, U.S. News released its 22nd annual Best Hospital rankings, singling out 720 hospitals out of around 5,000 nationwide. Only 17, or .003%, earned the coveted Honor Roll–which signifies the highest of medical excellence–with John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore topping the list.
By the way, aren’t all hospitals supposed provide that level of excellence across the board?
The rankings also identify the Best Hospitals in 94 of the largest metropolitan areas, a major expansion that covers nearly twice as many cities as in the past. They also include the Most Connected Hospitals, or those with the most advanced electronic medical records system.
For the first time, U.S. News named the top doctors at many of the best hospitals across the nation. Nearly 30,000 physicians will be highlighted and searchable by location and hospital affiliation, as well as across a wide range of specialities.
