Boston is again home to two of the nation’s top hospitals, according to the 2014-2015 U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals list. Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) ranked second on the Honor Roll and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), ninth. Boston is also the only city with two hospitals in the top 10 list; 2014 marks the eighth consecutive year that Partners HealthCare’s founding members have held that honor.
U.S. News recognized several other Partners hospitals for their excellence in specialty care. McLean Hospital was ranked fourth in the nation for psychiatry, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital came in at sixth for rehabilitation. MGH and BWH both appeared among the top hospitals in the country for a range of specialties, as well.
At the regional level, MGH and BWH were ranked first and second in the Boston area, respectively. Newton-Wellesley Hospital was also in the top 10 at number nine in the Boston area, commended for its services in diabetes and endocrinology, geriatrics, orthopedics and urology. And North Shore Medical Center ranked number 13 on the Boston list, also noted for its distinction in geriatric care.
