Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, was again named the best hospital in the U.S. in U.S. News & World Report’s 2018-19 Best Hospitals. Mayo Clinic also ranked No. 1 in more specialties than any other hospital in the country.

Mayo Clinic has always ranked at or near the top of the annual “Best Hospitals Honor Roll.” Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, was also ranked No. 1 within those states. 

Mayo Clinic is part of a select group of hospitals recognised on the “Best Hospitals Honor Roll” for “breadth of excellence,” according to U.S. News & World Report. The honor roll consists of 20 hospitals with the highest combined overall scores in 16 medical and surgical specialties.

Mayo Clinic ranks first, second or third in 11 specialties, including No. 1 rankings in six specialties:
– Diabetes and Endocrinology
– Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal Surgery
– Geriatrics
– Gynaecology
– Nephrology
– Neurology and Neurosurgery

Mayo Clinic ranked No. 2 in four specialties — Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Orthopaedics, Pulmonology and Urology (two-way tie). It ranked No. 3 in Cancer.
Specialties are measured for various factors, including mortality index, patient safety, nurse staffing and Magnet status (the gold standard in nursing), patient services, technology and reputation. 

Mayo Clinic staff work to deliver the highest standards of care and transform scientific discoveries into clinical advances that help people everywhere.

“We are humbled and honoured by our ranking with U.S. News & World Report,” said Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., president and CEO, Mayo Clinic. “We have continuously refined our system of care for more than 150 years. We are always working to deliver accurate answers as quickly as possible and ensure the best outcomes for our patients.” 

Mayo Clinic’s commitment to quality dates back more than 150 years to when the Mayo brothers invented the team-based approach to medicine – an approach that continuously evolves and improves. Its physicians are salaried to eliminate any financial pressure from patient care decisions. Mayo Clinic’s experts work across specialties to provide comprehensive and coordinated care for patients.

“Our top ranking is only possible because of our talented staff,” Dr. Farrugia said. “Mayo Clinic’s emphasis on collaboration and teamwork allows us to bring the full spectrum of our knowledge and expertise together to focus on the individual needs of each patient.”
Mayo Clinic is a global destination for patients with serious and complex conditions. More than 1.3 million people from about 140 countries turn to Mayo Clinic for diagnosis and treatment each year. 

“Our primary value is that the needs of the patient come first. We take that value and we embed it in everything we do,” Dr. Farrugia said.

Many outside agencies rate quality in healthcare. Mayo Clinic is the only healthcare organisation that consistently ranks among the top providers nationwide regardless of the quality measure used.
