Top Ranking: U.S. News & World Report

For the 17th consecutive year, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and its physician partners at Washington University School of Medicine are the only St. Louis area hospital or medical institution listed among America’s elite medical centers in the U.S. News & World Report “America’s Best Hospitals” issue.

Barnes-Jewish earned honors as part of the newsmagazine’s “Honor Roll,” ranking 9th nationally while ranking in 15 individual specialties.

Hospitals had to meet a series of progressively tougher standards to be ranked. Of 4,861 U.S. hospitals, only 21 hospitals made the “Honor Roll,” a list reserved for medical centers with very high rankings in at least six specialties. To be considered, a hospital had to satisfy at least one of three requirements: membership in the Council of Teaching Hospitals, medical school affiliation, and key technology-related services. From there, hospitals were ranked based on four elements: reputation, death rate, patient safety and such care-related factors as nursing and patient services. Four specialty areas— ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation and rheumatology—were ranked by reputation only.
