News magazine U.S. News & World Report has published a list of the top 10 American hospitals for treating diabetes and delivering endocrinological care.
The magazine ranks the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, as the top U.S. hospital in the diabetes/endocrinology category, followed by Ohio’s Cleveland Clinic.
The remaining eight top-ranked hospitals are:
3. Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston
4. Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore
5. UCSF Medical Center, San Francisco
6. New York-Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, N.Y.
7. Yale-New Haven Hospital, New Haven, Conn.
8. Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago
9. UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles
10. University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle
Rankings were based on the hospitals’ performance in several areas, including pain and wound management, genetic testing and counseling, and palliative care. Other factors in the ranking include technology, nursing staff, patient education, and how care is delivered, from intake to outcome or discharge. Other criteria include a hospital’s size, affiliation with a medical school, membership in the council of teaching hospitals, and overall patient statistics with regard to volume and mortality.
As well as the top 10 U.S. hospitals, the magazine ranked 40 other hospitals in the diabetes/endocrinology category to compile a top 50 list.
