Utah hospitals ranked among nation's top 50

3 Charleston hospitals were named among the best in South Carolina

In Ohio, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center came in second, after the Clinic.

U.S. News again ranked Rush University Medical Center second in the state.

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago was also named among the Best Children's Hospitals in the country, coming in at no. 7 on the list, a drop down from last year's no. 6-ranking.

Since Gianrico Farrugia arrived as CEO in Jacksonville in 2015, the Mayo Clinic committed to spend more than $300 million on construction, essentially doubling the medical center's square footage with the goal of doubling the number of patients who can be seen.

Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital ranked eighth statewide, recognized as high-performing in four procedures or conditions.

The ranking factors in hospital performance in 16 specialty areas as well as procedures offered.

All hospitals on the Honour Roll have received points within 16 specialties across the board. The hospital was also recognized as "high performing" in Pulmonology and Psychiatry.

The hospital did not rank nationally in any category and was rated "average" for most adult procedures and conditions.

"We opened with a cancer center, later added an emergency department, out patient services, and diagnostic services, but is was August of 2007 that we matured into a full fledged hospital", said Genie Aubel, President of St. Elizabeth Hospital in Boardman. "We're really pleased that we can have a major presence in this city", he said. The rankings remain focused on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and readmission rates, volume, patient safety and quality of nursing, but the methodology expanded for the 2017-18 review.

Since 2016, UK HealthCare has gone from one specialty top-50 ranking - Geriatrics, which moved up two spots from #45 to #43 - to having four major adult specialties nationally ranked.

U.S. News' Best Hospitals rankings are based on publically-available data and other information such as patient and physician surveys. In the previous year, the hospital has cut its death rate from sepsis by 10 percent.

U. of C. Medicine said in a statement that new metrics used by U.S. News this year "set up an unfair comparison with previous years' results".

The highest national rankings for Wake Forest Baptist were 27th in cancer and nephrology, along with 33rd in geriatrics and gynecology, 34th in ear, nose and throat, and 37th in neurology and neurosurgery. Dr. Jon Sweetenham, senior director for clinical affairs at the institute, said the center's reach likely played a big role in its high ranking.
