U.S. News & World Report has released its annual ranking of the nation's best hospitals and three in New York City have landed in the top 20.
The study analyzed more than 4,500 medical centers across the country to compile the rankings.
In addition to the general ranking, the publication also awards 20 hospitals the distinction of being on the "Honor Roll." Landing on this list means the hospital delivers "exceptional treatment across multiple areas of care," according to U.S. News & World Report.
The methodology behind the "Honor Roll" ranking is based on survival and readmission rates, volume, patient experience, patient safety and quality of nursing.
