Mass. General ranked fourth best hospital in the nation


The U.S. News & World Report Tuesday unveiled its list of best hospitals across the country, as well as rankings in the state and areas of "high performance".

Cleveland Clinic finished at the second spot in this year's rankings, with Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore ranked third. That marks a change from past year, when Utah Valley Regional Medical Center - now Utah Valley Hospital - and Dixie Regional Medical Center were also ranked.

This year, the publication found UT Medical Center to be the second-best hospital in the entire state of Tennessee. While more than 1,200 were rated high performing in at least one procedure or condition, only 48 were high performing in all nine procedures and conditions. UW Medicine's four hospitals - Harborview Medical Center, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center, University of Washington Medical Center and Valley Medical Center - admit more than 64,000 patients each year.

This year US news evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals. Central DuPage Hospital is nationally ranked in two specialties with one high performing specialty and eight high performing procedures/conditions.

Among hospitals in Iowa, UI Health Care again earned the top spot, according to the 2017-18 U.S. News report. "To be recognized among the nation's best hospitals truly reflects the innovation and quality care that Mount Sinai provides".

The news magazine has published its 2017-2018 national, state and local rankings of "Best Hospitals" across the United States.

"We view the facility as a net positive for the strength of our programs", he said.

In its 28th year, more than 4,500 medical centers in 25 specialties were compared based on objective measures such readmission rate, volume, patient survival and patient safety, among others. The ranking does mark a drop from Northwestern's eighth-place ranking last year and its 11th place ranking the year before.

Mayo ranked nationally in 15 adult and 9 pediatric specialties. "Our physicians, advanced practice providers (APPs), endocrinology fellows and staff, including expert certified diabetes educators, continually seek opportunities to pass on advanced patient care based on our ongoing research into the best ways to prevent and treat diabetes and endocrine diseases". "Honors like the U.S. News & World Report rankings validate the work we're doing to deliver on that mission".

The hospital has also recently been responsible for developing an antibiotic-releasing polymer which may simplify the treatment of prosthetic joint infection, according to a recent press release.
