Hopkins places third on U.S

Penn Medicine hospitals have once again been ranked among the top hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, achieving Honor Roll status and top rankings in 12 clinical specialties. "The citizens of our state can take great pride and comfort in the knowledge that their only public, statewide hospital system is consistently cited as one of the best in the country.".

MUSC was one of only two S.C. hospitals to rank nationally for a specialty.

For the 2018-19 rankings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions.

Hopkins was nationally ranked for its cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, ear, nose and throat, gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery, geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, psychiatry, pulmonology, rheumatology, and urology specialties. In addition, the Concord medical center was rated as high performing in all nine adult procedures and conditions, including Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair, Aortic Valve Surgery, COPD, Colon Cancer Surgery, Heart Bypass Surgery, Heart Failure, Hip Replacement, Knee Replacement and Lung Cancer Surgery.

What have the newspapers said? "The greatness of America is dependent on the role of a free press to speak the truth to the powerful", the Globe's editorial said.

This is the 29th year of the magazine's rankings, which officials with U.S. News say are meant to help patients make informed decisions about where they go for medical care. John Muir Health's Concord medical center is listed at #2 out of 48 hospitals in the San Francisco Metro Area and #12 out of more than 400 acute care hospitals in California.

It is ranked No. 1 in MI and No. 1 in the metro Detroit area. U.S. News said the other top hospitals in North Carolina for treating complex medical conditions are: Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, Carolinas Medical Centerin Charlotte, Mission Hospital in Asheville, Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital in Greensboro and FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst.

Likewise in ME, three of the states hospital received rankings based on the high standards by U.S. News. "Being recognized as the top hospital in the state is an incredible testament to the work being done by our medical staff, team members, community partnerships, and innovative collaborations". To provide the most accurate results, U.S. News combed through data for almost 5,000 hospitals. They looked at teaching hospitals, hospitals affiliated with a medical school, hospitals with at least 200 beds or those with at least 100 beds that treated patients in at least four of eight specialties that U.S. News deemed significant.
