Rochester's Mayo Clinic again ranked as best hospital in America

A North Carolina hospital may have been booted off a list of the top hospitals in the nation, but it still holds onto its spot as the best in the state.

Once again, Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix has ranked No. 1 in Arizona and No. 18 nationally by U.S. News & World Report.

Hershey Medical Center is the fourth ranked hospital in the state, and is nationally ranked in four specialties, according to the list.

It is the 19th consecutive year that New York-Presbyterian was the top-ranked hospital in the city.

The magazine reviewed almost 5,000 medical centers nationally in 25 specialties, procedures and conditions for its annual list.

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem at No. 5.

Morristown edged Hackensack University Medical Center and Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston.

The rankings were determined by hospital service in 16 areas of "complex specialty care", along with nine bellwether procedures. The specialties that hospitals were ranked for included cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology and GI surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology; orthopedics; psychiatry, pulmonology and lung surgery; rehabilitation; rheumatology and urology.

Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 57 earned this rating in all nine procedures and conditions.

UPMC Pinnacle in Harrisburg is the sixth ranked hospital in the state, and is also nationally ranked in orthopedics.
