America's Best Hospitals

I came across a report conducted by US News featured on Yahoo that I thought was interesting to share about America's Hospitals. There are 174 hospitals that are ranked in one or more specialties, 21 qualified for be listed as one of America's Best Hospitals by earning high scores in at least six specialties.

Hospitals were ranked by giving 2 points if they were at or close to the top in a specialty and they were given 1 point if ranked slightly lower. Here are America's Best Hospitals for 2009-2010:
