Additional details from the Best Hospitals rankings include:

According to U.S. News, the annual Best Hospitals rankings recognize hospitals that excel in treating patients who need an especially high level of care. For 2015-16, U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties. Just 3 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed earned national ranking in even one specialty. In most specialties, the rankings are based largely on objective measures, such as patient survival and safety data, adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data.

The rankings are available at and will appear in the U.S. News “Best Hospitals 2016” guidebook, available in August.
