Brigham and Women’s Hospital Once Again Ranked on U.S. News & World Report’s List of Nation’s Best Hospitals

The Brigham ranks 12th on Annual Honor Roll; five specialties ranked in top 10

Brigham and Women’s Hospital has risen to 12th on the 2020 U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of Best Hospitals, up one spot from last year’s annual Honor Roll rankings.

The annual rankings were developed to help consumers determine which hospitals provide the best care for the most serious or complicated medical conditions and procedures. They are based on a point system derived from a comprehensive nationwide evaluation of more than 4,500 medical centers in 16 adult specialties.

Many specialties at the Brigham rose in the rankings this year. The Brigham is now ranked in 13 of the 14 specialties in which it is eligible to be ranked, with five specialties earning top 10 status. The Brigham ranks fifth for Rheumatology; sixth for both Nephrology and Cancer; seventh for Cardiology and Heart Surgery; and eighth for Gynecology.

“I’m extremely proud of our continued presence on The Honor Roll of the best hospitals in the U.S.,” said Betsy Nabel, MD, president of Brigham Health. “It is a tribute to the dedication, compassion and innovative spirit of our staff, who work tirelessly to achieve our vision of a healthier community and a healthier world, and who bring hope to our patients and their loves ones, even during these most trying of times.”
