Every year, US News and World Report lists the top hospitals in the country. Everyone in the health care field knows that the methodology used in this survey has no statistical or scientific validity, but everyone wants to be at the top of the list!
Here's a story on efforts by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center to try to score well in this annual survey. We wish them well, especially because their former Chief of Medicine is now Chief of Medicine here at BIDMC. So if they get highly ranked, based on his many years of fine work there, we will share in their pleasure.
