Scripps La Jolla hospitals nab top local spot in annual hospital rankings – The San Diego Union-Tribune

A highly-watched national report ranks Scripps hospitals in La Jolla slightly ahead of UC San Diego facilities for the first time since 2011.

In its annual “best hospitals” edition, U.S. News & World Report lists Scripps in the No. 1 spot for its San Diego County regional rankings, pushing UCSD’s hospitals in La Jolla and Hillcrest to No. 2.

Though neither organization made the publication’s honor roll, reserved for the 20 hospitals judged the best in the nation, the top spot in town is still a very valuable honor capable of driving marketing campaigns in a region where a handful of big health systems compete for well-insured patients.

Nationally, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore topped the honor roll. In California, UC San Francisco, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Stanford Health Care and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles made it into the top 20.
