State and metro rankings
U.S. News also ranked best regional hospitals in 45 metropolitan areas with a population of a million people or more, based largely on the number of national rankings achieved. The combined programs of Scripps Green and Scripps La Jolla were ranked No. 2 in the San Diego metro area and No. 7 in California.
Scripps Mercy was ranked No.4 in the San Diego metro area and No. 24 in California.
U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition or added risk because of other health problems or age. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties. The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International; a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings. All rankings have been published at http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals and will appear in print in the U.S. News Best Hospitals guidebook, available in bookstores and on newsstands in September.
