The 2016-17 Best Hospitals Honor Roll

Just 20 hospitals out of nearly 5,000 evaluated for the 2016-17 U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings and ratings made the Honor Roll.

Hospitals got points according to whether and how high they ranked in 16 Best Hospitals specialties and how many "high performing" ratings they earned in nine Best Hospitals procedures and conditions. The top 20 point totals made the Honor Roll. The exclusive list has been revised to take into account both the specialty rankings and the procedure and condition ratings. Here are the hospitals, starting at No. 20 and working up.
