For 20 years running, Cleveland Clinic has been named the No.1 hospital in the country for cardiology and heart surgery, according to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals 2013-2014. Its urology program also captured the No. 1 ranking in the nation.

Overall, Cleveland Clinic is ranked the No. 4 health system in the U.S – and the No. 1 hospital in Ohio.

“This incredible recognition would not be possible without our devoted team of caregivers – 43,000 people who dedicate themselves to putting patients first every day,” says Toby Cosgrove, MD, Cleveland Clinic President and CEO.

“While these rankings are rewarding, we will continue to work hard to provide the highest quality, most efficient healthcare possible,” he adds.

How hospitals receive rankings

U.S. News surveyed nearly 10,000 specialists and sifted through data for nearly 5,000 hospitals to rank the best in adult specialties, from cancer to urology. Death rates, patient safety, and hospital reputation were a few of the factors considered.

Out of nearly 5,000 hospitals evaluated, just 18 made the cut for the Honor Roll. To qualify, hospitals had to score at the top in at least six out of 16 medical specialties.

In all, 13 Cleveland Clinic specialties placed in the Top 10 nationally, including nine in the top 3 nationwide.
