America's "Best" Hospital

For 17 years, The Johns Hopkins Hospital has led U.S.News & World Report’s ranking of America’s best hospitals. In 2007, only 173 of the nation’s 5,462 medical centers scored high enough to rank in even a single area. And only 18 made it to the magazine’s Honor Roll— topped by Hopkins and reserved for medical centers that excel in at least six of 16 difficult areas of care.

Johns Hopkins nurse staffing and certification as a Magnet facility are among the factors that place us in the forefront of this elite group, along with such measures as severity of illnesses treated, use of key technologies, patient and community services, commitment to research and use of advanced treatment guidelines.
