Top 10 Best U.S. Hospitals, 2014-2015 | Medical Blog

U.S. News and World Report released its 2014-2015 lists of the top hospitals across the country. The best centers were ranked in 16 medical specialties, from cancer to urology, based on data for nearly 5,000 hospitals and results from surveys of nearly 10,000 physicians.

Rankings were based largely on objective data on hospital performance, including patient survival rates and resources (eg, nurse staffing).

Hospitals were also ranked by specialty. Those with very high scores in at least six specialties earned a spot on the Honor Roll. For the first time, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, claimed the No. 1 Honor Roll spot, barely edging out Massachusetts General Hospital. Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Here are the top 10 on the Honor Roll (view all 17, including points and the number of high-ranking specialties):
