Six DOM Specialties Ranked by U.S. News & World Report

The U.S. News & World Report 2021-22 Best Hospitals list once again showcased an impressive number of Department of Medicine specialties. While unsurprising, the results are an effect of the unparalleled contributions put forth by the individuals in our department on a daily basis. We would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to the division chiefs, faculty, fellows, residents, nurses and staff for contributing so exceptionally to discovery, education and the care of our patients. These medical specialty rankings remind the world of what our teamwork is capable of accomplishing. We are both proud and grateful to each of you for striving to make our department excel not only in these specialties but across all of our divisions.

#1 Rheumatology
#6 Gastroenterology & GI Surgery
#6 Geriatrics
#7 Pulmonology & Lung Surgery
#8 Diabetes & Endocrinology
#16 Cardiology & Heart Surgery

The Johns Hopkins Hospital is ranked #1 in Maryland, #1 in the Baltimore region and #1 in 15 medical specialties. We extend congratulations to our colleagues at Howard County General Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview, which achieved regional rankings this year. Howard County General is tied for #11 in Maryland and is ranked #9 in the Baltimore region, and Johns Hopkins Bayview tied for #6 in both Maryland and in the Baltimore area. Sibley Memorial Hospital climbed to tie for the #4 ranking in the Washington area, and Suburban Hospital ranked #8 in Maryland and tied for #7 in the Washington metro region.

*Our Division of Nephrology, which has been ranked in the top 5 of specialty rankings for the past several years, is now ranked "high performing" in kidney failure. U.S. News and World Report will no longer rank adult Nephrology. The new kidney failure rating has replaced the specialty ranking. To learn more, click here.

  1. Hi, perhaps it would be nice if the new "Scorecard" rankings are also recognized for Johns Hopkins.
    thank you
