The Far West's Top 5 Teaching Hospitals in 2021

Extracted from the most recent U.S. News & World Report (USNWR) rankings of American hospitals, the Far West's top 5 teaching hospitals in 2021 include 4 of the top 20 hospitals in the country.  Only 175 hospitals earned national recognition in at least one of 15 adult specialties examined in the USNWR survey. The five teaching hospitals listed here earned national recognition in at least eleven adult specialties and a top 20 national ranking in at least six of those specialties.  While the Far West region of the U.S. is home to many more teaching hospitals, these five institutions earned the most distinction in the USNWR survey:
