In the grading of the best hospitals, BWH also ranks among the top 10 in five categories: cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, gynecology, nephrology and rheumatology. BWH places in the top 20 in diabetes and endocrinology, geriatrics, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics and pulmonology.
Once again, BWH and Massachusetts General Hospital were the only hospitals in New England included in the top 10 Honor Roll, making Boston the only city in the country to have more than one hospital in the top 10.
