Once again, Mayo Clinic Hospital has topped all others in Arizona in the latest ranking of hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. In the 2020 - 2021 U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Rankings, Hoag is the highest ranked hospital in Orange County and the only OC hospital ranked in the Top 10 in California.

Mayo Clinic Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, ranked No. 1 nationally. The complete listing of America's Best Hospitals can be found here.

Cliff Megerian, MD, President of UH, said, "I see great things for UH Cleveland Medical Center and the UH system in the coming year, as we work to manage the Covid pandemic and continue to care for patients and their medical needs".

The annual rankings evaluated almost 5,000 hospitals for 16 adult specialties and ten procedures and conditions.

MGH was among the top ten hospitals in the country in 11 specialties, including ear, nose and throat (in partnership with Mass. Eye and Ear), cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, nephrology, gynecology, ophthalmology (in partnership with Mass. Eye and Ear), orthopedics, psychiatry, rehabilitation (in partnership with Spaulding) and rheumatology. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized hospitals as high performing across multiple areas of care.

While the UK Markey Cancer Center has been designated as "high performing" for many years prior to cracking the top 50, this year's ranking of No. 29 in cancer care is the highest to date.

After the game, Baker said : "When you throw a 3-0 fastball over a guy's head, now you're flirting with ending his career". The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the test results were not announced.

Additional rankings included high performing in three adult specialties, Cancer, Nephrology and Urology, as well as high performing in 10 procedures and conditions, including Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair, Aortic Valve Surgery, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Colon Cancer Surgery, Heart Bypass Surgery, Heart Failure, Hip Replacement, Knee Replacement, Cancer Surgery, and Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). "The hospitals that rise to the top of our rankings and ratings have deep medical expertise, and each has built a track record of delivering good outcomes for patients". The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume, and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.
