Michigan has the 11th best hospital in the U.S., according to a new study from U.S. News.

According to the report, University of Michigan Hospitals-Michigan Medicine is the No. 1 hospital in Michigan and the 11th in the country.

“The Best Hospitals Honor Roll highlights 20 hospitals that excel across most or all types of care evaluated by U.S. News,” the publication states regarding the Honor Roll, which includes the top 20 hospitals, including Michigan Medicine.

They added, “Hospitals received points if they were nationally ranked in the 15 specialties – the more specialties and the higher their rank, the more points they got – and if they were rated high performing in any of the 17 procedures and conditions. The top point-scorers made the Honor Roll.”

Beaumont Hospital Royal Oak falls No. 2 in Michigan. Tied for No. 3 are the Beaumont Hospital locations in Grosse Pointe and Troy.

The best hospital in the country, according to the report, is the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. View the full report here.
