2014 US Hospital Ranking

It was with great pride when I read of the news today.
The US News and World Report published their annual hospital ranking.
And this time, for the first time ever, my alma mater was ranked number one.
RankHospitalPoints*High-ranking specialties*
1Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota2915
2Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston2815
3Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore2615
4Cleveland Clinic2614
5UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles2315
6New York-Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, New York 2212
7Hospitals of the University of Pennsylvania-Penn Presbyterian, Philadelphia1911
8UCSF Medical Center, San Francisco1710
9Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston1510
10Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago1310
 
For many years, she has ranked number two, just behind Johns Hopkins. This was in spite of being number 1 for many subspecialties. But this time, it barely beat out the competition and ended up on the top, with Mass Gen (Harvard) being right behind.
Well done, Mayo!
As one of the thousands of your graduates, today we beam with pride at the news. This was well-earned, and reflects well on the teachings of the Mayo brothers, one of which I hold dear to my heart even today: The needs of the patient comes first
