Only 134 hospitals, out of nearly 5,000 studied, earned national distinction in at least one of the 16 adult specialties covered in the most recent (20-21) U.S. News & World Report rankings of American hospitals.  Of the top twenty best overall hospitals in the nation, five are teaching hospitals based in the Mid-East region of the country. Let's take a look at these five institutions and where they excel:
