Mayo Clinic Ranked No. 1 in Florida by U.S. News & World Report
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Mayo Clinic is ranked No. 1 in Florida and the Jacksonville metro area in U.S. News & World Report’s annual list of top hospitals published online today.
In addition to the Florida ranking, Mayo Clinic’s Rochester, Minnesota, campus was named the best hospital in the nation on U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals. The Rochester campus also took the No. 1 spot in Minnesota, and Mayo Clinic’s campus in Arizona was ranked No. 1 in that state and in the Phoenix metro area.
“The rankings reflect the dedication of our exceptional staff in providing outstanding care and service to our patients,” says Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., CEO, Mayo Clinic in Florida. “Mayo Clinic is a special place because of our employees, and I congratulate each of them on this honor.”
Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus ranked nationally among the top 50 hospitals in eight specialties:
- Ear, Nose and Throat
- Gastroenterology and GI Surgery
- Neurology and Neurosurgery
Mayo Clinic in Florida was highly ranked above the national average in Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Nephrology and Urology.
Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus provides diagnosis, medical treatment, surgery and care for more than 105,000 patients each year in 40 specialty areas. Mayo has 5,531 employees in Florida and contributes more than $1.6 billion to the Florida economy.
Mayo Clinic is celebrating 30 years in Florida. In 1986, Mayo Clinic brought its team approach to caring from Rochester to the Southeast when it opened a clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. Today, the nearly 400-acre campus offers a medical destination for patients from all 50 states and 140 countries.

“The No. 1 ranking is outstanding news for Jacksonville and Northeast Florida,” says Dr. Farrugia. “Mayo Clinic’s 150-year legacy in medicine includes 30 years in Florida. We are proud that Mayo is the medical destination for people from throughout our state and the Southeast who come to us with the most complex medical conditions.”
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. In the 2016 rankings, Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus tied for No. 1 in the state.
