U.S. News looks at risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing.

"We know outcomes matter most, which is why U.S. News is committed to publishing as much data as possible on patient outcomes", Harder said. Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Massachusetts General and UCSF Medical Center rounded out the Top 5.

Both hospitals received accolades for speciality care. "The U.S. News ranking is one of many measures, including patient satisfaction surveys, research grants, publications and many others, which place us at the forefront of respiratory care and research".

"Our physicians, advanced practice providers (APPs), endocrinology fellows and staff, including expert certified diabetes educators, continually seek opportunities to pass on advanced patient care based on our ongoing research into the best ways to prevent and treat diabetes and endocrine diseases".

Hospital Compare, The Joint Commission, The Leapfrog Group, Consumer Reports and Healthgrades are some of the other credible resources that provide regular reports on quality and performance of USA hospitals.
