Mayo Clinic ranked top hospital in Florida by U.S. News & World Report
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Once again, Mayo Clinic has been named the best hospital in Florida and the Jacksonville metro area in U.S. News & World Report’s annual list of top hospitals published today on the U.S. News & World Report website.
“I congratulate the thousands of staff of Mayo Clinic for their continued dedication and leadership in health care,” says Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., vice president, Mayo Clinic, and CEO of Mayo Clinic in Florida. “The rankings reflect Mayo Clinic’s truly integrated approach to finding answers for the most highly complex medical conditions, as well as our staff’s focus on the needs of the patient.”
Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus ranked nationally among the top 50 hospitals in seven specialties:
- Cardiology and Heart Surgery
- Ear, Nose and Throat
- Gastroenterology (GI) and GI Surgery
- Neurology and Neurosurgery
Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus provides diagnosis, medical treatment, surgery and care for more than 111,000 patients each year in 40 specialty areas. Mayo has 6,100 staff members in Florida and contributes $2 billion to the Florida economy.

Beyond Florida, Mayo Clinic Hospital – Rochester in Rochester, Minnesota, was named the best hospital in the country on U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll. Mayo Clinic’s Rochester campus also took the No. 1 spot in Minnesota. And Mayo Clinic’s Arizona campus is No. 1 in Arizona and the Phoenix metro area.
More than 150 years of quality
Mayo Clinic’s commitment to quality dates back more than 150 years to when the Mayo brothers invented the team-based approach to medicine – an approach that is continually evolving. Mayo Clinic’s experts work across specialties to provide comprehensive and coordinated care for patients with the most serious and complex conditions.
This U.S. News & World Report honor follows a recent Mayo Clinic report, Remarkable Moments of Sharing that provides insight into what makes a top hospital and highlights Mayo’s effect on the economy, health system and patients.
“The No. 1 ranking is again exciting news for Jacksonville and Florida as we build out Mayo Clinic’s future as a destination medical center,” Dr. Farrugia says. “We are investing heavily in people, space and technology on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus to ensure Mayo Clinic, our region and state leads the future of medicine.”
This is the 28th year that U.S. News & World Report conducted a rankings list, which encompasses 16 medical specialties. U.S. News & World Report analyzes data for 4,500 medical centers to determine the rankings announced today on.
