U.S. News & World Report has released the 28th edition of the Best Hospitals rankings, which includes the best hospitals for nephrology. The Mayo Clinic ranked number one for nephrology on the best hospitals list, and also topped the honor roll list, which includes hospitals that received very high scores in at least six specialties.

The magazine ranks the best hospitals in nephrology based mostly on death rates for patients who represent especially challenging cases, patient safety, readmission rates, nursing quality, and other measures of performance that can be assessed using hard data. Results from the three most recent years of an annual reputation survey of physicians are also factored in. Surveyed physicians are asked to name up to five hospitals they consider the best in their specialty for difficult cases.

1 Mayo Clinic
