JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Mayo Clinic is again ranked the No. 1 hospital in the Jacksonville metro area and Florida in U.S. News & World Report's "Best Hospitals" rankings, which were published on Tuesday, July 26, on the U.S. News & World Report website. Mayo Clinic in Florida has ranked No. 1 in the state of Florida for six of the past seven years.
"It is an honor to be recognized as the No. 1 hospital in the state of Florida," says Kent Thielen, M.D., CEO of Mayo Clinic in Florida. "We are truly grateful to our extraordinary teams for continuously putting the needs of our patients first while providing the highest quality of care."
Mayo Clinic in Florida also ranked nationally among the top 50 hospitals in seven specialties:

Mayo Clinic in Florida provides diagnosis, medical treatment, surgery and care for more than 120,000 patients each year in 40 specialty areas. Mayo has more than 8,400 staff members in Florida and contributes $2 billion to Florida's economy. This year, Mayo Clinic celebrates 36 years in Florida.
In 1986, Mayo Clinic brought its team approach to caring from Rochester, Minnesota, to the Southeast when it opened a clinic in Jacksonville. Today, the nearly 400-acre campus offers a medical destination for patients from all 50 states and 140 countries.
Mayo Clinic's commitment to quality and collaboration dates back more than 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 closely across specialties to provide comprehensive and coordinated care for patients with the most serious and complex conditions.
