The hospital ranked first in gynecology, otolaryngology and urology, and second in geriatrics, kidney disease, neurology/neurosurgery, ophthalmology and rheumatology. Hopkins ranked third in cancer, digestive disorders, hormonal disorders, pediatrics, psychiatry and respiratory disorders.

The second-ranked hospital on the list was the Mayo Clinic and third was Massachusetts General.

They were followed by The Cleveland Clinic; UCLA Medical Center; Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina and University of California San Francisco (a tie); Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis; New York-Presbyterian Hospital and University of Washington Medical Center (tie); University of Michigan Medical Center; Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston; Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
