U.S. News releases 2017-18 Best Hospital rankings

August 18, 2017

U.S. News released its 28th annual version of the Best Hospital rankings and Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., earned the top spot for the second year in a row, according to an article on the Becker's Hospital Review website.

U.S. News delayed the rankings' release by a week after finding several coding errors associated with new ranking methodologies.

Cleveland Clinic took the No. 2 spot again, but Johns Hopkins Hospital moved past Massachusetts General Hospital for third place.

Finishing the top 10 are:

• UCSF Medical Center (San Francisco)

• University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers (Ann Arbor)

• Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center (Los Angeles)

• New York-Presbyterian Hospital (New York City)

• Stanford (Calif.) Health Care-Stanford Hospital

• Hospitals of the University of Pennsylvania-Penn Presbyterian (Philadelphia)
