Newswise — BALTIMORE –The Johns Hopkins Hospital is once again ranked #3 in the nation out of more than 4,600 hospitals reviewed for U.S. News & World Report’s 2019–20 Best Hospitals list, which was released today.
The publication also ranked 12 specialties at Johns Hopkins among the top 10 in the nation, with three — Geriatrics, Neurology and Neurosurgery, and Rheumatology ranked #1. This new overall ranking, when combined with the U.S. News #9 national ranking of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, maintains Johns Hopkins’ standing as the nation’s top-ranked hospital for patients of all ages.
In a congratulatory video message to staff, Redonda G. Miller, M.D., M.B.A., president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, celebrated the power of teamwork, and of the “passion and compassion” of the nurses, faculty and staff at the hospital.
“This is a truly amazing feat, showcasing our commitment to providing the highest quality care for our patients. It is not the accomplishment of one person — or one unit or one department or one floor,” she said. “This recognition belongs to all of us.”
The Mayo Clinic earned the #1 overall ranking this year, followed by Massachusetts General Hospital at #2.
U.S. News has assessed hospitals for 30 years, during which Johns Hopkins has consistently ranked among the best in the nation. Last year, the hospital was also ranked #3 on the list.
In a note to all Johns Hopkins Medicine employees, Paul B. Rothman, M.D., dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Kevin W. Sowers, M.S.N., R.N., F.A.A.N., president of the Johns Hopkins Health System and executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine, praised the staff for always striving for excellence.
“These annual rankings, which assess the performance of more than 4,600 hospitals in the United States, are often used by consumers to determine the best hospital to treat patients with serious illnesses and complex medical conditions. Because of your dedication and commitment, we continue to excel in delivering this kind of innovative care.”
