US News has published its best hospital rankings 2012-13. The rankings—now in their 23rd year—feature data on nearly 5,000 hospitals across the country. They span 16 medical specialties, from cancer to urology, and identify top hospitals in several hundred regions, including all major metropolitan areas.
The rankings are based largely on objective measures of hospital performance, such as patient survival rates, and structural resources, such as nurse staffing levels. Each hospital’s reputation, as determined by a survey of physician specialists, is also a factor in the ranking methodology.
