Featured, Healthcare Staffing

U.S. News & World Report recently announced its annual 2019-2020 Best Hospitals list. According to the publication’s website, “The Best Hospitals Honor Roll takes both the specialty rankings and the procedure and condition ratings into account. Hospitals received points if they were nationally ranked in one of the 16 specialties – the more specialties and the higher their rank, the more points they got – and also if they were rated ‘high performing’ in the nine procedures and conditions.”

Without further ado, you’ll find the top 20 hospitals for 2019-2020 below:

1. Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota

2. Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston

Among other changes this year, the publication revised its methodology to include a patient experience measure that takes into account a hospital’s HCAHPS performance. There is also a new risk-adjusted outcomes measure, which looks at the likelihood of a patient being discharged to his or her home, rather than to a nursing home or other facility
