Yale New Haven Hospital continues to rank among the top U.S. hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” listing. Of the nearly 5,000 hospitals surveyed, YNHH ranks nationally in eight of 15 specialties for 2021-22.

“We are very pleased to be named again to U.S. News & World Report’s listing,” said Keith Churchwell, MD, YNHH president. “This national recognition comes at a momentous time in health care. The talent and dedication of our entire medical community, coupled with the advances in treatments, reflect the ongoing commitment to those we serve at a time when the focus and needs of health care continue to change daily. As Connecticut’s top-ranked hospital, we are proud to provide the highest level of care to patients and families, hand-in-hand with innovative research in an academic environment.”

YNHH ranked #11 in Psychiatry, and performed well in Geriatrics (#21), Pulmonology (#27), Diabetes and Endocrinology (#33), Neurology and Neurosurgery (#42), Gastroenterology (#45) and Gynecology and Ear, Nose and Throat (both at #47).

The U.S. News “Best Hospitals” rankings rely on clinical data and an annual survey of specialists. The ranking methodology factors in objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival, discharge-to-home rates, patient volume and nursing quality. In addition, patient outcomes, clinical services and processes, and compliance with best practices are considered. The entire national listing is available online at
