Johns Hopkins Hospital Voted 3rd Best Hospital In US

3 Charleston hospitals were named among the best in South Carolina

U.S. News evaluated hospitals across 16 specialties and nine procedures and conditions. Geriatrics earned a Top 50 ranking for the first time, while urology, pulmonology, cardiology, and diabetes and endocrinology had the largest jumps in the rankings. And they're practically all-encompassing - they include ratings of 25 specialties, conditions and procedures.

In Florida, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville retained its statewide first-place ranking from previous year, while Tampa General Hospital rose one rank to second place and UF Health Shands Hospital dropped two ranks to third place. Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston took the No. 4 spot, and UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco came in No. 5.

North Shore University Hospital and Stony Brook University Hospital were tied for 12th in the state rankings, followed by Long Island Jewish at 16 and Huntington Hospital and South Nassau Communities Hospital tied at 17.

This year USA news evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals.

Most of the procedures and conditions at Carlisle Regional Medical Center were rated as average, except for abdominal aortic aneurysm and fix and colon cancer surgery, which were both rated by U.S. News & World Report as "below average".

For hospitals, it's a good thing. To see more, visit KCUR 89.3. Each year, a number of different organizations rank hospitals, all using different methodologies.

University of Iowa Health Care in February opened a new $360 million, 14-floor, stand-alone children's hospital - adding 134 pediatric beds and 507,000 square feet to the UI Hospitals and Clinics main campus.

The rankings are available on the U.S. News Best Hospitals website.

Northwestern Memorial has four specialties that received top 10 recognition: Cardiology & Heart Surgery (7th), Geriatrics (9th), Neurology and Neurosurgery (9th) and Orthopaedics (9th). Two years ago, Mayo was ranked fourth in the state.

Hospitals of the University of Pennsylvania -Penn Presbyterian, and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia also made the list.

"The 50-point spread between our closest peer group that was (tightly grouped) at No. 2-4 was what really jumped out at me", Noseworthy said.

U.S. News again ranked Rush University Medical Center second in the state.

U.S. News & World Report began publishing hospital rankings in 1990 to identify the best medical centers in various specialties for the most hard patients - those whose illnesses pose unusual challenges because of underlying conditions, procedure difficulty or other medical issues that add risk.
