Mayo Clinic Lauded in Quality Rankings, Most Recently by US News & World Report
The 24th US News & World Report annual America’s Best Hospitals list released today reveals Mayo Clinic earned the No. 3 overall spot on the “Best Hospitals” list.
Mayo ranked No. 1 in the nation in five clinical areas — gynecology, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology and pulmonology. Mayo is ranked No. 2 in five additional specialties — cardiology and heart surgery; ear, nose and throat; geriatrics; neurology and neurosurgery; and orthopedics. Mayo Clinic earned the No. 1 spot in Minnesota, ranked No. 1 in Arizona and specifically in the Phoenix metro, and tied for the No. 1 rank as best hospital in the Jacksonville area.
Mayo Clinic President and CEO John Noseworthy, M.D., says, ““These endorsements reinforce our century-old commitment to provide the highest quality care to each patient every day. While no single set of measures can perfectly represent health care quality, we are proud to be recognized by so many. We are honored by this recognition, and we remain focused on our primary mission: putting the needs of our patients first and creating for them the best possible, most trusted and affordable model of health care for the future.”
There are many external agencies that rate quality in health care, and Mayo Clinic is top ranked for quality by more well-known national assessment organizations than any other academic medical center in the nation.
