Cleveland Clinic ranked No. 1 heart hospital in U.S. for 29th consecutive year and No. 1 hospital in Ohio
US News & World Report has named Cleveland Clinic to its Honor Roll of the top hospitals in the country in its 2023-24 Best Hospital Rankings.
The annual rankings also named Cleveland Clinic the No. 1 hospital for cardiology and heart surgery for the 29th year in a row, as well as the No. 1 hospital in Ohio.
The Honor Roll recognizes 22 top-performing hospitals. Unlike previous years, US News is not ranking Honor Roll hospitals in numerical order this year, instead recognizing the fact that all Honor Roll hospitals meet the highest quality standards of care.
Cleveland Clinic supports the change as the overall numerical rankings do not meaningfully distinguish differences in care between Honor Roll hospitals.
“We recognize no methodology is perfect; therefore, we encourage individuals to use a variety of sources to help identify quality care,” said Leslie Jurecko, M.D., Cleveland Clinic’s Chief Safety, Quality and Experience Officer. “While we are proud of our performance, we will continue to focus on doing what matters most – striving to provide the highest quality, safest patient-centered care; supporting research and clinical innovation; and serving our communities.”
Cleveland Clinic has been a pioneer in healthcare transparency, reporting outcomes and quality metrics across many medical and surgical specialties to help patients make informed choices.
