Out of nearly 4,700 hospitals reviewed, The Johns Hopkins Hospital ranked #1 in Maryland and #3 in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s 2017–18 Best Hospitals list. Thirteen specialties at The Johns Hopkins Hospital are now among the top 10 in the nation. Ten specialties are in the top five.
This—coupled with the recent pediatric ranking in which U.S. News named Johns Hopkins Children’s Center #5 nationally—makes Johns Hopkins the nation’s top-ranked hospital combined for both adult and pediatric care.
“We all know that these types of accomplishments do not occur in a vacuum,” she said. “Rather, they are the result of the foresight, planning and dedicated efforts of thousands of employees who are committed to ensuring that the care we provide is world-class and who are focused on what is most important: the needs of our patients and their families.”
Of the 28 years that U.S. News has ranked hospitals, The Johns Hopkins Hospital is the only one to rank #1 in the nation 22 times. Last year, The Johns Hopkins Hospital was ranked #4 in the nation.
In a note to all Johns Hopkins Medicine employees, Paul B. Rothman, M.D., Dean of the Medical Faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Ronald R. Peterson, President of the Johns Hopkins Health System and Executive Vice President of Johns Hopkins Medicine, reminded staff of the most important measure of success.
“The truest gauge of excellence is how well we treat our patients and their families,” they wrote. “And by that measure, we know that we continue to deliver the high standard for which Johns Hopkins has always been known.”
Three of the Johns Hopkins Medicine member hospitals were also recognized in the regional rankings. The Johns Hopkins Hospital ranked #1 in all specialties in Maryland and in Baltimore. Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center ranked #11 in Maryland and #10 in Baltimore. Suburban Hospital ranked #11 in Maryland and #6 in the Washington, D.C., area.
