U.S. News & World Report Issues the 2019-20 Best Hospitals – Top 21 Honor Roll

U.S. News & World Report released their 2019-20 Best Hospitals rankings. The annual rankings acknowledge hospitals for outstanding performance in delivering complex and common care.

Nearly 4,700 hospitals nationwide were evaluated based on analysis gathered on performance in adult and pediatric clinical specialties, procedures and conditions. Due to a tie for 20th, there were 21 hospitals that performed the best to make the Honor Roll. About 62% of the Top 21 hospitals are Medical Packaging Inc. (MPI) customers and many are repeat customers with more than one MPI packaging solution being utilized in their facility.

The rankings for the Honor Roll consider 16 areas of complex specialty care and 9 specific procedure and conditions, such as heart bypass and lung cancer surgery. Only 165 U.S. hospitals performed well enough to be nationally ranked in one or more specialties.

Hospitals receive points for both the specialty rankings and procedure and condition ratings to make the Honor Roll.   The higher their rank in specialties and if they earn a “high performing” in the ratings, the more points they acquired.
