Specialty Hospitals: The Best and the Brightest

Specialty Hospitals: The Best and the Brightest


With just over 100 designated “Specialty Hospitals” in the United States, the pressure is on to not only stand out amongst your peers, but also alongside hundreds of other “General Hospitals” that may have strong specialty departments. While the debate of Specialty vs. General is still going strong, one thing is for sure: In the decade that Special Hospitals have come about, they have proven themselves to offer equal, or better, care than their General counterparts.

Johns Hopkins Hospital


Location: Baltimore, MD

US News and World Reports #1 Hospital in the US is topping the list of the 18th consecutive year. They top our list because of their emphasis on surgical training through their residency training program. Johns Hopkins has ten divisions of surgery including cardiovascular, abdominal transplant, burn and plastic surgery.

Johns Hopkins has always been a surgical pioneer. They were the first to succeed with “blue baby” surgery and they were also the birthplace of neurosurgery.
