U.S. News & World Report has named Mayo to its annual list of “Best Hospitals” for the 22nd year. Hospitals included in the Honor Roll, such as Mayo, are part of a small group recognized for “breadth of excellence,” according to the magazine. The rankings were announced today on U.S. News & World Report’s website. Print editions will be on newsstands starting August 30.
To make the magazine’s “Honor Roll,” a medical center has to rank at or near the top in at least six of the 16 specialties included in the rankings. Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. was ranked in the top five in 12 of the 16 specialties, in the top three in 10 specialties, and No. 1 in four specialties: diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, gynecology and kidney disease and disorders.
Mayo Clinic in Florida was nationally ranked in cancer (#46) and gastroenterology (#39) and Mayo Clinic in Arizona was nationally ranked in gastroenterology (#40), gynecology (#35) and nephrology (#29). In rankings earlier this year by major metropolitan area, Mayo Clinic in Arizona ranked No. 2 overall in the Phoenix market, while Mayo Clinic in Florida is No. 1 overall in the Jacksonville market.
