The United States is home to more than 6,200 hospitals, which can make it difficult to find out who is providing the best medical care and treatment.
Every year, US News prepares a list of the largest hospitals in the country, making it easier for readers to find what suits their needs best.
US News lists lists of the best hospitals for specific conditions as well as a "Honor Roll" highlighting large hospitals across specialties and procedures. Hospitals earn points if they are nationally ranked in 16 specialties, such as cancer care and "high performance" in the nine procedures and conditions such as cardiac and lung cancer surgery. The more points achieved, the higher the rank on the honor roll list.
To make the list, the hospitals have performed to a high standard and improved many people's lives. Read on to see the 20 best hospitals in the US, according to US News.
