Now in its 33rd year, Best Hospitals evaluates hospitals in more than 30 medical and surgical services, including three new cancer ratings: Ovarian Cancer Surgery, Prostate Cancer Surgery and Uterine Cancer Surgery. Also new this year: an expanded set of health equity measures that highlights which hospitals provide more care to low income patients and which have racial disparities in certain surgical outcomes.

The 2022-2023 rankings highlight the top 20 hospitals named to the Honor Roll for delivering exceptional treatment across many areas of care. For the seventh consecutive year, Mayo Clinic claimed the top spot on the Honor Roll. Ranked at No. 2 this year is Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, NYU Langone Hospitals at No. 3.

In the specialty rankings, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center ranked No. 1 in Cancer, the Cleveland Clinic is No. 1 in Cardiology & Heart Surgery and NYU Langone Hospitals is No. 1 in Neurology & Neurosurgery.

"For patients considering their options for where to get care, the Best Hospitals rankings are designed to help them and their medical professionals identify hospitals that excel in the kind of care they may need," said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis and managing editor at U.S. News.

The Best Hospitals methodology and Procedures & Conditions methodology factor objective measures such as survival rates, patient experience, level of nursing care and how successfully each hospital helps patients get back home. To calculate the Best Hospitals rankings for overall performance, specialties, states and metro areas, U.S. News evaluated each hospital's performance using a variety of measures from data provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, American Hospital Association, professional organizations and medical specialists. The Procedures & Conditions ratings are based entirely on objective patient care measures.

This year's rankings will be published in the U.S. News & World Report's "Best Hospitals 2023" guidebook (ISBN 9781931469999), available to order from the U.S. News Online Store.
