It was with great pride when I read of the news today.
And this time, for the first time ever, my alma mater was ranked number one.
|1||Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota||29||15|
|2||Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston||28||15|
|3||Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore||26||15|
|5||UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles||23||15|
|6||New York-Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, New York ||22||12|
|7||Hospitals of the University of Pennsylvania-Penn Presbyterian, Philadelphia||19||11|
|8||UCSF Medical Center, San Francisco||17||10|
|9||Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston||15||10|
|10||Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago||13||10|
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
