Looking for a hospital at which to get a procedure performed? Talk to your doctor and family. Do your homework by consulting websites like MHA’s own PatientCareLink
site or the federal government’s Hospital Compare
. You can even check some of the more popular sites such as U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings, which last week released its 2019 findings.
U.S. News ranked Massachusetts General Hospital as the second best hospital in the U.S., just behind the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and just ahead of Johns Hopkins in Maryland. Brigham and Women’s Hospital was ranked at number 13 nationally. Last month, U.S. News ranked Boston Children’s Hospital at Number 1 in the children’s hospital category.
There are more than 5,000 hospitals in the United States. In addition to MGH, the Brigham, and Boston Children’s, the following Massachusetts hospitals were nationally ranked in one or more specialties: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, and New England Baptist Hospital – all part of Beth Israel Lahey Health; Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Hospital, McLean Hospital, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Boston. Dozens more Massachusetts hospitals received recognition for being “high performing” in various procedures/conditions.
