The hospital, located in Downtown Boston, earned the #4 spot. Iowa's ear, nose and throat department maintained its elite status at No. 5. The hospital was ranked fifth best for cardiology, second for diabetes and endocrinology, fifth for gastroenterology, third for neurology, second for psychiatry, and fourth for pulmonology.

"For almost three decades, we've strived to make hospital quality more transparent to health care consumers nationwide", said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News.

In a news release late Monday night, Mayo Clinic CEO Dr. John Noseworthy said, "Mayo Clinic is consistently top ranked nationwide more often than any other hospital because of the thousands of people here who shared a vision".

The news magazine has published its 2017-2018 national, state and local rankings of "Best Hospitals" across the United States. More than 4,500 medical centers were evaluated for the rankings and 152 performed well enough to rank nationally in at least one of 25 specialties. "We're proud to be included on the Best Hospitals list".

In 2016, it reported more than 58,000 emergency department visits - and numbers were trending up this year, according to a recent Board of Regents report. In addition, hospitals scoring well on the Patient Safety Score past year may score average or close to average in 2017. This is the seventh time KU hospital's geriatrics care have made the list. The intent is to give patients information to help them find the best care across a range of specialties, according to Ben Harder, U.S. News chief of health analysis. Thirteen specialties at The Johns Hopkins Hospital are now among the top 10 in the nation. That was down from eight last year and nine two years ago.

Brandon Knight Injury Update
Phoenix Suns guard Brandon Knight could miss the entire 2017-2018 season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee. If the Suns were to move Bledsoe, Knight's presence on the roster would have been almost guaranteed for next season.


This year, the publication found UT Medical Center to be the second-best hospital in the entire state of Tennessee.

"The 50-point spread between our closest peer group that was (tightly grouped) at No. 2-4 was what really jumped out at me", Noseworthy said.

The recognition comes from an annual U.S. News and World Report which ranks hospitals based on patient care, patient safety, clinical resources and family involvement.

St. Elizabeth Youngstown was recognized as a high performer in nephrology, pulmonology, heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); St. Elizabeth Boardman was a high performer in heart failure, COPD and knee replacements; and St. Joseph Warren Hospital was a high performer in heart failure and COPD.

Earning the No. 3 spot in Iowa was Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.
