Mayo Clinic ranked No. 1 hospital in the United States




Mayo Clinic has been named the best hospital in the United States in U.S. News & World Report’s annual list of top hospitals. In addition, Mayo Clinic is ranked No. 1 in more specialties than any other hospital in the U.S.

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 2016-17 Best Hospitals list and was ranked No. 1 in eight specialties:

  • Diabetes and Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology and GI surgery
  • Geriatrics
  • Gynecology
  • Nephrology
  • Neurology and Neurosurgery
  • Pulmonology
  • Urology

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.

Additionally, Mayo Clinic has been 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.”
