July 28, 2022

Mayo Clinic has been ranked the No. 1 hospital in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.



Mayo Clinic has been ranked the No. 1 hospital in the nation for the seventh consecutive year in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” rankings.

U.S. News & World Report began publishing state rankings in 2012, and Mayo Clinic in Rochester has ranked No. 1 in Minnesota since the beginning. This year also marks the 10th year that Mayo Clinic in Arizona has ranked No. 1 in the state, and Mayo Clinic in Florida has ranked No. 1 in the state of Florida for six of the past seven years.

In addition, Mayo Clinic in Arizona is again included in the “Best Hospitals” Honor Roll list, making it the sixth consecutive year Arizona has been named a top-20 hospital. Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, has been recognized as a “Best Regional Hospital” in Northwestern Wisconsin, and Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato, Minnesota, has been recognized as a “Best Regional Hospital” in Southwest Minnesota.

“We’re honored to again be recognized as the No. 1 hospital in the nation, and our staff are at the heart of this accomplishment,” says Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., Mayo Clinic’s president and CEO. “We’re grateful for their deep commitment to our values and the needs of our patients.”

The U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” Honor Roll features 20 hospitals with the highest combined overall scores in 15 medical and surgical specialties, and 20 common procedures and conditions. Three of the 15 specialties are measured on reputation only — ophthalmology, psychiatry, and rheumatology. The other 12 specialties are measured on factors such as survival, patient experience, nurse staffing, advanced technology, patient services and reputation with other specialists.
