U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals rankings have been conducted
for 28 years and are among the most referenced by consumers because they
are based primarily on objective data, including risk-adjusted survival
and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety, and
quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators. Each hospital's
reputation, as determined by surveys of physician specialists, is also a
factor. This year they surveyed more than 4,500 medical centers, which
represent virtually all U.S. community inpatient facilities, and ranked
hospital performance in 25 medical specialties, procedures, and
