The Johns Hopkins Hospital Ranked #3 Nationally by U.S. News


The hospital ranks #1 overall in Maryland, among nation’s top 10 in 12 specialty areas

BALTIMORE, MD – The Johns Hopkins Hospital is once again ranked #3 in the nation out of more than 4,500 hospitals reviewed for U.S. News & World Report’s 2020–21 Best Hospitals list, which was released today.

The publication also ranked 12 specialties at Johns Hopkins among the top 10 in the nation, with four — Ear, Nose, and Throat, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, and Rheumatology ranked #1. This new overall ranking, when combined with the U.S. News national ranking of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, maintains Johns Hopkins’ standing as the nation’s top-ranked hospital for patients of all ages.

In a congratulatory video message to staff, Redonda G. Miller, M.D., M.B.A., president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, likened the interconnecting care of the hospital staff to a completed jigsaw puzzle — composed of individuals with talents and expertise who come together as a team “in the name of health and healing” as well as clinical excellence.

“You are the corner pieces and the edge pieces and the middle pieces that seamlessly snap together to complete the picture that is The Johns Hopkins Hospital. You are the reason for our long-standing recognition on the U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals honor roll,” she said. “I am so proud to be part of this team.”

The Mayo Clinic earned the #1 overall ranking this year, followed by Cleveland Clinic at #2.

U.S. News and World Report has assessed hospitals for 31 years, during which The Johns Hopkins Hospital has consistently ranked among the best in the nation. Last year, the hospital was also ranked #3 on the list.

In a note to all Johns Hopkins Medicine employees, Paul B. Rothman, M.D., dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Kevin W. Sowers, M.S.N., R.N., F.A.A.N., president of the Johns Hopkins Health System and executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine, said that “exceptional, respectful and innovative care will always be at the core of our mission.”

“We owe a debt of gratitude to each of you for your compassion, sacrifice and consistent effort to advance our promise of medicine,” Dr. Rothman and Mr. Sowers wrote.
