The Johns Hopkins Hospital again earned the top spot as "Best of the Best" in U.S. News & World Report's annual Honor Roll of American hospitals, placing first in five of 16 ranked medical specialties and in the top four in 10 others. Only 14 hospitals nationwide made it to the Honor Roll this year out of 5,189 institutions graded.

"Once again, the magazine and medical professionals across the nation have affirmed the excellence of our faculty physicians, our nurses and our staff," said in a joint letter announcing the good news from Edward D. Miller, M.D., dean and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Ronald R. Peterson, president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System. "We say it each year and we mean it: This recognition is a tribute to them and to the community physicians whose contributions to Johns Hopkins Medicine are significant."
