U.S. News named Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota the best hospital in the nation, and awarded the institution more #1 specialty rankings than any other hospital. The awards were announced online in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016-17 Best Hospitals for Procedures & Conditions.

Consistently ranked No. 1

Mayo Clinic has more #1 rankings than any other provider and is recognized more often than any other academic medical center in the nation regardless of the quality measure used.

Mayo Clinic is first among a select group on the U.S. News Honor Roll, recognized for “breadth of excellence,” according to the magazine. Mayo Clinic ranks #1 in eight specialties including diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and urology.

Each Mayo Clinic physician, scientist, researcher and educator works together in a team-based model to deliver the highest standard of care and transform scientific discoveries into critical advances for patient needs.
