    Best hospitals ranked

    I did not realize that Mayo in Rochester, MN was so well thought of. Interesting to see if nothing else, glad I am within a short helicopter visit of the 2nd best hospital in the country...

    Mayo is regarded as one of the best hospitals in the world, not just the United States, especially when it comes to research.

    Re: Best hospitals ranked

    I always thought that University of Iowa Hospitals were highly thought of. It's the one thing I was willing to give the Hawkeyes.

    Getting sick is about the only good thing to do in Rochester.

    I'm sure they aren't far off. I've always heard that they're highly thought of.

    You mean Urbandale Family Physicians didn't make the cut? I know it's not a hospital, but hey... Broadlawns must run a close second.

    Re: Best hospitals ranked

    Iowa's dept. of otolaryngology is one of the best in the world. I think that used to carry a lot of weight for their comprehensive US News ranking.

    i assumed that is why you posted this thread, and the Mayo comment was just a comment to ensure the thread survived until someone else made the comment saving you from being the baiter.......

    I credit the Mayo Clinic for saving a family members' life, and the University of Iowa for mine .
