John Hopkins ranked third among hospitals in the nation

Northwestern ranked Illinois' top hospital, according to US News Cleveland Clinic named No. 2 hospital by US News for the second consecutive year

The Johns Hopkins Hospital earns another top national ranking. Under children's specialties, Penn State Children's Hospital ranked 39 for pediatric cardiology and heart surgery, 46 for pediatric orthopedics, 46 for neonatology and 50 for pediatric cancer.

Northwestern was also the only IL hospital to rank among the top 20 in the country, though this year it ranked 13th, down from eighth last year. It targets 25 specialties from cancer to urology. Suburban Hospital ranked #11 in Maryland and #8 in the Washington, D.C., area.

This year's results also included 152 hospitals ranked across 16 specific specialties.

A MI health system has been named among the top hospitals in the country. He credited the rankings to "the dedication of our faculty, network physicians and staff".

U.S. News & World Report analyzes data for 4,500 medical centers to determine the rankings.

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital topped the regional list and ranked No. 24 nationally in the diabetes and endocrinology care. "It tells potential employees what a great place it is to work, it tells patients in the community that you don't have to leave the community to get your health care, and it tells folks that we are one of the best in the country".

Ohio State Wexner Medical Center is again named central Ohio's No. 1 hospital, and is ranked third in the state, behind only Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals of Cleveland. And like most other rankings, they're not definitive guides.

The rankings are produced for the magazine by RTI International, a research firm in Research Triangle Park.

This year, the publication found UT Medical Center to be the second-best hospital in the entire state of Tennessee. Lake Forest Hospital has two high performing specialties and two high performing procedures/conditions. It has four high performing procedures/conditions: heart failure, colon cancer, COPD, and lung cancer surgery.

Forsyth was listed as a high performer in eight categories in 2017-18 and 11 categories for 2016-17 after being not listed in 2015-16.

There is some debate about which consumer health care rankings carry the most weight.

Along with objective numerical data across more than 2,600 metrics, 125,000 doctors nationwide were surveyed for their "expert opinion on where they would send their most challenging cases", the U.S. News explained. Gynecology, ranked 35th last year, is unranked this year. Earlier this summer, U.S. News compiled the Best Children's Hospitals Honor Roll. The hospital is listed in the top spot this year alongside University of Colorado Hospital, with which it shares an academic affiliation.
