  • Francis Hospital Ranks Among Best in NY, Report Says

U.S. News evaluated 4,658 hospitals across the country for this survey and fewer than half performed well enough to have even a single specialty program ranked.

"These rankings acknowledge the outstanding care that our specialized teams of physicians, nurses and other health care providers deliver to our patients each day at Hershey Medical Center", said Dr. Peter Dillon, president of Penn State Medical Group, executive vice president of Penn State Health and chair of the Department of Surgery.

Mayo has finished atop the rankings both times since that conversation as U.S. News continues to tinker with its methodology.

It is followed by the Cleveland Clinic, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, and the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Since 2016, UK HealthCare has gone from one specialty top-50 ranking - Geriatrics, which moved up two spots from #45 to #43 - to having four major adult specialties nationally ranked.

"While we are proud of the programs that have been recognized, we are disappointed with the overall rankings of the Medical Center", U. of C. Medicine said.

RTI International, based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, compiled all data and produced the rankings for U.S. News.

"We are honored, humbled and very happy about being recognized for the 11th year in a row as a top 50 hospital (nationwide)", said Bob Page, president and CEO of the KU Health System.


Keck Medical Center of USC, which consists of Keck Hospital of USC and USC Norris Cancer Hospital, was ranked among the best hospitals in California (No. 10). The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago was named the nation's best hospital for rehabilitation.

A year ago, Mayo tied for the distinction of top hospital in Florida with UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville. The ratings in procedures and conditions, by contrast, focus on typical Medicare patients. It is also the No. 1 hospital for cardiology and heart surgery for 23 consecutive years now.

Steward Health Care's hospitals, Trumbull Memorial Hospital in Warren and Northside Hospital in Youngstown, did not rank in the top 26 hospitals in the state.

Ranked second in Northeast Florida are Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville and Baptist Medical Center South, which share a license.

No other Northeast Florida hospital is listed in the rankings.

He said the project could help the hospital move up in the rankings next year.

Hospital in Cedar Rapids ranked No. 2 in Iowa, also earning "high-performing" marks in seven "adult procedure and conditions".
