U.S. News & World Report compared more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in the following specialties: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; ophthalmology; orthopedics; psychiatry; pulmonology and lung surgery; rehabilitation; rheumatology; and urology.

According to U.S. News & World Report, the hospital data were obtained before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and for future reports, modifications to the ranking methodology may be made to account for the impact on the pandemic on hospital measures.
