Did you ever wonder which would be the best hospital in which to be treated for various ear problems, or to have surgery to receive a cochlear implant?

Wonder no longer. The U.S. News and World Report has compiled a list of the top 51 ENT hospitals in the country.

In case you are interested, the number one hospital for “ears” in the USA is Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, IA comes in second. In third place is the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, MA.

You can find out the details of why these and the rest of the top hospitals ranked the way they did by clicking on the U.S. News web site, then click on “Best Hospitals” in the box at the top left, then choose “Ears, Nose & Throat.” Even faster, just click here and you’ll be taken directly to this list.
