From the moment you arrive at Johns Hopkins, you become part of a long tradition of distinguished health care. Since our doors opened more than a century ago, our mission has been excellence. We strive to lead the world in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and to train tomorrow's great physicians, nurses and scientists. Above all, we aim to provide the highest quality health care and service to all of our patients.
Our commitment to excellence shows. We continually make news, introducing new therapies and furthering medical discovery. We know, however, that good care involves more than good medicine. That's why our concern for you extends to every aspect of your stay. We want your experience at Johns Hopkins to be as pleasant and as comfortable as possible. The Johns Hopkins Hospital has once again — for the 19th consecutive time — earned the top spot in U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings of more than 4,800 American hospitals, placing first in three medical specialties and in the top 16 in 13 others.
