Best Hospitals: U.S News Announces the List

Best Hospitals in U.S.

Well the numbers are in: The 2013 edition of U.S. News and World Report has published a list of the best hospitals in the country. The rankings are based on specialty and focus less on routine care and more on the extraordinary cases that require more expertise and pose more of a challenge.
