According to U.S. News, the annual Best Hospitals rankings, now in its 25th year, recognize hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients. For 2014-15, U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties. 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. Just 3 percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals that were analyzed earned national ranking in even one specialty.
