Barnes-Jewish Hospital Makes U.S. News' Honor Roll (Again)


U.S. News & World Report came out yesterday with its annual ranking of the country's best hospitals.

Earning high marks (again) was Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The hospital ranked No. 9 this year in the magazine's "Honor Roll" of best hospitals. According to a Barnes-Jewish spokesperson, the ranking marks the 17th consecutive year U.S. News has named it as the only St. Louis area medical center listed among the nation's elite.

The hospital scored particularly high marks for its kidney, neurology and respiratory divisions.

U.S. News also ranked St. Louis Children's Hospital as one of America's top ten hospitals for kids. Both Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children's Hospital are partnered with the Washington University School of Medicine.
