The Johns Hopkins Hospital Ranked #1 in the Nation in Five Specialties
Since its founding, The Johns Hopkins Hospital has broken new ground, led the field in medicine and made history in countless ways. Just one of the hospital’s many historic achievements is that it was consecutively ranked #1 in the nation for 21 years out of the 23 in which U.S. News & World Report has held its annual rankings of U.S. hospitals. This year, the hospital is again ranked #1 nationally in five specialties, and it is ranked #2 overall in the nation. We understand that changes were introduced in the methodology, which apparently affected the ranking of many organizations, including Johns Hopkins. In the magazine’s inaugural ranking of hospitals at the state level, the hospital ranked #1 in Maryland. It ranked #1 in the Baltimore metropolitan region, and it is the only hospital in the state that has consistently ranked nationally in 16 medical specialties. This achievement is made possible by the outstanding faculty, nurses, staff and community physicians of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
