Top 100 Hospitals

Becker's Hospital Review is pleased to announce its 2014 list of "100 Great Hospitals in America." Each of following institutions has a rich history, strong credentials and a growing focus on how to best care for patients in an era of reform. These organizations have played home to some of the greatest medical advancements in U.S. health care history, and they are also the bastions of their respective communities — serving the roles of academic hubs or local mainstays.

To develop this list, the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team conducted research, considered nominations and evaluated reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics' 100 Top Hospitals, Healthgrades, Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, The LeapFrog Group, and several other resources.

Editor's note: This list is not a ranking, and hospitals are displayed in alphabetical order. This list is not an endorsement of included hospitals or associated health care providers, and hospitals cannot pay to be included on this list.
