PHILADELPHIA— Penn Medicine hospitals have once again been ranked among the top in the nation by U.S News & World Report. The combined enterprise of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center is ranked #13 in the nation on the magazine’s prestigious annual Honor Roll for the 15th consecutive year. HUP/PPMC is also ranked as the top hospital in Pennsylvania and #1 in the Philadelphia metro area in the 2021-2022 survey.
