U.S. News & World Report's Best Hospitals Rankings

Find the best care for yourself and your family

Hospital rankings have become an important way for people to learn which hospitals have the greatest level of expertise and offer the highest-quality care in selected specialties.

Since 1990, U.S. News & World Report's Best Hospitals list has ranked hospitals nationwide according to data such as procedure volumes, nurse-to-patient ratios, and patient safety and survival.

U.S. News evaluated nearly 5,000 hospitals for the 2013-14 Best Hospitals list. The University of Kansas Hospital ranked among the nation's best 50 in 9 specialties.
