Hopkins Ranks Among Best Hospitals In AARP Physician Survey

Johns Hopkins Hospital recommended for Heart, Cancer, "Mystery Diagnoses," Neurosurgery, and Ophthalmology
Release Date: April 2, 2009

April 2, 2009-  A new survey of U.S. physicians commissioned by AARP ranks The Johns Hopkins Hospital among the “most frequently recommended” medical centers for heart disease, cancer, “mystery diagnoses,” neurosurgery and ophthalmology. Results of the survey, conducted by Consumers’ Checkbook, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit research organization, are published in AARP magazine’s May/June issue.

The ratings are based on 140,000 ratings collected from a nationwide group of medical doctors designed to identify to which out-of-town specialty hospitals they were most likely to send patients with extremely difficult or complicated medical needs.

“We’re pleased that physicians around the nation continue to recognize The Johns Hopkins Hospital as a top-tier source of medical care,” said Ronald R. Peterson, president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System.
