This marks Mayo Clinic’s fifth year with the No. 1 ranking in the nation, along with Mayo Clinic being ranked the No. 1 hospital in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. The Clinic continues to rank No. 1 in more medical specialty areas than any other U.S. medical center.

Additionally, Mayo Clinic in Arizona is ranked No. 16 on the “Best Hospitals Honor Roll,” one of the top 20 hospitals in the nation.

The U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” rankings recognize the 20 U.S. hospitals with the highest overall scores in 16 medical and surgical specialties, and 10 common procedures and conditions. Hospitals are measured on factors that include survival, experience, nurse staffing, patient services and reputation with other specialists.

Mayo Clinic ranks No. 1 in six specialty areas this year, more than any other provider:

  • Diabetes and Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology (GI) and GI Surgery
  • Gynecology
  • Nephrology
  • Pulmonology and Lung Surgery
  • Urology

“We are grateful for this recognition as we know patients and their families turn to rankings like these when they are deciding where to go for care, and we do want them to come to Mayo Clinic for their complex or serious care,” says Dr. Farrugia.

Mayo Clinic has grown to become a global destination for hope and healing since it began as a single physician medical practice in 1864. Mayo Clinic’s staff of more than 70,000 provide expert, compassionate care to more than 1.2 million patients from every state and nearly 140 countries each year.

“Being ranked the No. 1 hospital in the nation, and the top ranked hospitals in Arizona, Florida, and Minnesota, validates what our staff does every day to provide the safest and best care to every patient,” says Henry Ting, M.D., chief value officer, Mayo Clinic. “Our ongoing commitment to quality, safety and experience is unwavering in the new normal of the COVID-19 pandemic. These honors truly belong to our staff. We’re proud to be recognized as a category of one for the outstanding patient care that has differentiated Mayo from other health care organizations throughout our 150-year history.”

U.S. News & World Report evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 26 specialties, and 10 procedures and conditions, to compile its annual “Best Hospitals” rankings.
