U.S. News estimates that each year nearly 2 million people face the prospect of surgery or special care that poses either unusual technical challenges or significantly heightened risk of death or harm because of age, physical condition or existing conditions. These rankings are offered as a tool to help patients find sources of especially skilled inpatient care.
Hospitals’ performances in 16 specialties are compiled in part from the three most recent years of an annual reputational survey of specialized physicians are also factored in. Surveyed physicians are asked to name up to five hospitals they consider the best for difficult cases in their specialty.
Hospitals that are not nationally ranked but scored high enough in a specialty to put them in the top 10 percent of those hospitals that were analyzed are recognized as high performing. Hospitals that are nationally ranked in at least one of the 16 data-determined specialties, or that earned at least three ratings of high performing across the 16 specialties and nine procedures and conditions are designated as Best Regional Hospitals within their states, metropolitan areas or other regions.
