Dr. Toby Cosgrove, Cleveland Clinic president and CEO said that “Frankly, I think any time you measure and look at yourself, it’s important because you realize you can always get better. If we find out there’s some deficiency, some place we’re not doing well, we try to look at it and improve it.”

In Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic is #1, University Hospital comes at #2, Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital at #3, Hillcrest Hospital at #4, MetroHealth Medical Center at #5, Marymount and South Pointe tied at #6, and Southwest General Health Center in Middleburg Heights coming in at #8.
