Choosing the best hospital just got a lot easier. This comprehensive guide, compiled by the editors of U.S. News & World Report, ranks all of the nation's major hospitals in 16 different medical specialties.

Expanding on U.S. News' authoritative "Best Hospitals" annual guide, America's Best Hospitals is based on in-depth research developed exclusively for U.S. News by the National Opinion Research Center, a social-science research affiliate of the University of Chicago. The hospital rankings combine statistics about each hospital with its reputation among top physicians to yield an overall score for each facility.

  • AIDS Ophthalmology
  • Cancer Orthopedics
  • Cardiology Otolaryngology
  • Endocrinology Pediatrics
  • Gastroenterology Psychiatry
  • Geriatrics Rehabilitation
  • Gynecology Rheumatology
  • Neurology Urology
  • Ranks hospitals state by state and in 10 key metropolitan areas, in 12 specialties
  • Includes vital statistics about patient care—like mortality rates, the ratio of nurses to beds, discharge planning, the availability of medical technology, and other key data
  • Provides practical guidance for getting admitted to the top hospitals, arranging for payment, and other pressing issues confronting anyone facing a trip to the hospital

Whether you're faced with an illness, need to schedule elective surgery, or simply want peace of mind should an emergency strike, America's Best Hospitals has everything you need to make a safe, informed decision regarding healthcare facilities.

U.S. News & World Report has a circulation of almost 2.3 million, and an estimated readership of 11 million. It is the only newsweekly with "News You Can Use."
