At its founding in 1889, The Johns Hopkins Hospital revolutionized medical practice in the United States. By integrating patient care with the best in medical education and research, Hopkins set the stage for much of what we take for granted in medicine today, from the rigorous training of physicians and nurses to the emphasis on research and its rapid application to patient care.
Today, patients come from all over the world, the United States and our own community to see Hopkins physicians, many of whom are leaders in their fields.
The Johns Hopkins Hospital is the only hospital in history to have earned the number one ranking for 22 years from U.S. News & World Report—an unprecedented 21 years in a row from 1991 to 2011, and again in 2013.
