Mayo Clinic – Jacksonville is the top hospital in Florida, according to U.S. News & World Report’s best hospitals rankings. The health center has now ranked as best in the state of Florida for six of the past seven years.

Mayo Clinic in Florida also ranked nationally among the top fifty hospitals in seven specialties: Cardiology and Heart Surgery, Diabetes and Endocrinology, Gastroenterology and GI Surgery, Geriatrics, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, and Pulmonology and Lung Surgery. In addition, Mayo Clinic in Florida was rated high performing in cancer and urology.

“It is an honor to be recognized as the No. 1 hospital in the state of Florida,” says Kent Thielen, M.D., CEO of Mayo Clinic in Florida. “We are truly grateful to our extraordinary teams for continuously putting the needs of our patients first while providing the highest quality of care.”

Each year, more than 120,000 patients are treated at the Mayo Clinic – Jacksonville center in Florida for medical diagnosis, treatment, surgery, and care across forty specialties. Mayo employs more than 8,400 people in Florida and makes a $2 billion economic contribution to the state, according to hospital statistics. The Mayo Clinic is marking thirty-six years in Florida this year.

The Mayo Clinic branch in Rochester, New York was ranked as the top facility nationwide. The Mayo Clinic has been named the best hospital in the country for seven years running. Since 2012, when U.S. News & World Report started publishing state rankings, Mayo Clinic in Rochester has also held the top spot in the state of Minnesota. Arizona’s Mayo Clinic is ranked first in both the state of Arizona and the Phoenix metro region, and it has kept this position for ten years running.

AdventHealth Orlando placed behind Mayo Clinic – Jacksonville, and was named the top healthcare center in the Central Florida region, marking the twelfth year in a row the hospital has claimed the top spot in the area.

“I am so proud of our physicians, nurses and the entire team for receiving this gold standard in care by U.S. News & World Report,” said Randy Haffner, president and CEO of AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division. “Being recognized for 12 consecutive years as Orlando’s No. 1 hospital, combined with our nationally ranked specialties, demonstrates our team’s unparalleled and consistent commitment to clinical excellence.”

Like Mayo, AdventHealth Orlando ranked among the top fifty in the nation for six medical specialties: cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and orthopedics. Another four specialties — cardiology and heart surgery; geriatrics; pulmonology and lung surgery; and urology — were recognized as “high-performing.”
