Hopkins is #1 hospital in the U.S.

My institution had a bit of good news this week.  The latest U.S. News rankings of the nation's top hospitals just appeared, and Hopkins has regained the number 1 spot, which it temporarily lost last year.  We've been number 1 for 22 of the past 23 years.  See the story here.

I'd like to think this is, in part, because Hopkins Medicine has been one of the foremost institutions in the world at pursuing science-based and evidence-based medicine.


  1. My memory of my post-doc days there with Ham Smith are that it was a terrible neighbourhood to live in, but a great place to be sick.

    1. I had no idea you had worked with Ham. Small world after all.

    2. Rosie, I didn't know you worked with Ham Smith either. I worked with him in the early and mid 1990s, and he was the one who originally introduced me to The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR), which he and I both joined full-time in 1997.
