U.S. News and World report released its annual take on the country’s best hospitals Tuesday, with a couple of Boston hospitals dropping down a few notches this year.
Mass. General Hospital was named third overall this year, down from first place in 2015. The hospital also made national rankings for all of the review’s 16 subcategories, earning first place for its psychiatric and ear, nose and throat departments.
It also came in second place for diabetes and endocrinology treatments and ranked fourth in cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, ophthalmology, and pulmonology. Not bad!
Brigham and Women’s Hospital was ranked 13th after ranking sixth last year, but came in fourth place for cancer treatments in this year’s honor roll.
The magazine also ranked the top hospitals in the state, starting with Mass. General, Brigham and Women’s, Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Beth Israel Deaconess and Tufts.
One thing's for sure: Boston is a great place to be sick.
