Top Ranked Teaching Hospitals in the Far West

In the latest U.S. News & World Report (USNWR) rankings of American hospitals, only 164 hospitals surveyed earned national recognition in at least one of the 15 adult specialties examined in the USNWR study. While the six-state Far West region of the U.S. is home to multiple teaching hospitals, only five teaching hospitals in the region earned national distinction in at least ten adult specialties.  For receiving national recognition in ten or more adult specialties in the USNWR survey, these five hospitals stand out as the top ranked teaching hospitals in the Far West:
