Johns Hopkins University Hospital Tops National Rankings

By

In the latest U.S. News Best Hospitals Honor Roll, Maryland's Johns Hopkins University Hospital ranks #1 in the nation for five of its specialties.  It ranks between #2 and #5 in 10 other specialties. Overall, it's the #2 hospital in the nation, out of more than five thousand evaluated by U.S. News for the 2013 rankings.

#1:  Ear, Nose & Throat, Geriatrics, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Rheumatology medical visit

#2:  Ophthalmology, Urology

#3:  Cancer, Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Gastroenterology

#4:  Diabetes & Endocrinology, Gynecology, Nephrology, Pulmonology

#5:  Orthopedics

#17:Rehabilitation


My family is very healthy, so we haven't had much occasion to seek medical attention at Johns Hopkins.  When we have, however, the difference in expertise of the physicians, their care and results has been undeniable.  This is saying a lot, since more than a dozen highly ranked hospitals are located in the Baltimore-Washington area, within an hour our home in Crofton.

For the past two years, I've been a regular visitor at the ENT clinic where my specialist manipulates his instruments in my ears without causing any discomfort or dizziness. This always amazes me, after a lifetime of ear issues and the dreaded pain and dizziness that often accompanies visits to an ENT specialist. The best part, however, may be that his treatment may have saved my ear drums, which were replaced with skin from my neck about 40 years ago, and slowed (or dare I say stopped?) my loss of hearing - without any more major surgery. 

Multiply my positive experience by the thousands of patients seen throughout Johns Hopkins daily, and we're looking at some GREAT medical care taking place.  Honestly, the superior medical care available at Johns Hopkins is a good reason to stay in Maryland when we retire. One never knows when quality health care may become a life or death matter. With so many changes coming to health care options, it's reassuring to be enrolled in this program - one that will NOT be available to retirees over age 65 who wish to enroll after August 20, 2012, unless something changes between now and then.

We have been so pleased with our experiences at Johns Hopkins University Medical Center that we recently took advantage of a healthcare option for retired military and families of active duty military personnel in this area - U.S. Family Health Plan at Johns Hopkins (USFHP).  For routine medical care we visit a Johns Hopkins Community Physicians location near our home (there are many throughout Maryland); specialized care at Johns Hopkins University Hospital is one of the perks. In fact, they can refer patients to other specialists, outside Johns Hopkins, if the patient prefers. 

Maryland residents are truly blessed to have such fine medical care available.  Find out if there's a hospital in your area on the U.S. News Best Hospitals Honor Roll.
