Mayo Clinic was named the best hospital in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s annual list of top hospitals published online today. In addition, Mayo Clinic is ranked No. 1 in more specialties than any other hospital in the country.

Mayo Clinic took the No. 1 spot in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. It also ranked No. 1 in the Phoenix metro area and in the Jacksonville metro area.

Mayo Clinic is part of a select group on the U.S. News Honor Roll recognized for "breadth of excellence," according to the magazine. To make the "honor roll," a medical center must rank at or near the top in at least six of 16 specialties.

Mayo Clinic was first overall in the magazine’s annual honor roll ranking of its Best Hospitals list and was ranked No. 1 in eight specialties:

Mayo Clinic has more No. 1 rankings than any other provider based on factors such as reputation, mortality index, patient safety, nurse staffing and Magnet status, patient services and technology. Mayo Clinic physicians, scientists, researchers,  educators and allied health staff members work together in a team-based model to deliver the highest standards of care and transform scientific discoveries into critical advances for unmet patient needs.

Mayo Clinic ranked No. 2 in three more specialties – cardiology and heart surgery, ear, nose and throat, and orthopedics – and No. 3 in cancer.

“We are honored to be recognized in this way, as it reflects the tremendous work of our staff every day in caring for our patients and their families,” says John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic. “This ranking is a testament to the dedication and excellence of all of our Mayo Clinic staff.”

Mayo Clinic’s commitment to quality and collaboration dates back 150 years when the Mayo brothers invented the team-based approach to medicine – an approach that is continuously refined over time. Then and now, Mayo Clinic’s world-class experts work extremely closely across specialties to provide comprehensive and coordinated care for patients with the most serious and complex conditions.

“We owe our success to our unique system of care as we collaborate across specialties to focus on the individual needs of each patient,” Dr. Noseworthy says. “It’s one reason why we consistently receive high rankings in measures like these, and why our patients tell us that the Mayo Clinic experience is unique, providing answers quickly and giving them confidence and hope. This unwavering focus on the patient in everything we do, I believe, is not replicated elsewhere.”

Many outside agencies rate quality in health care and Mayo Clinic is the only health care organization that consistently ranks among the top providers nationwide regardless of the quality measure used.

This is the 27th year that U.S. News & World Report conducted a rankings list, which encompasses 16 medical specialties. U.S. News analyzes data for 5,000 medical centers to determine the rankings, which were announced today on the U.S. News website.
