Specialties ranked

Some 16 specialty areas of care were considered, 12 of which were ranked and derived from data sources, such as Medicare, cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and geriatrics, neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology, and more.

Specialty rankings, including ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation and rheumatology, were determined by expert opinion only, based on responses from 3 years of physician specialist surveys in which doctors were asked to name the hospitals they would be inclined to refer their sickest patients.

Rankings list the top 50 hospitals for complex care in each data driven specialty and roughly a dozen in expert opinion-based specialties.

Why rank?

U.S. News hopes these rankings can be used as a tool to help patients locate sources of especially skilled patient care, particularly those patients with distinctive care needs.
