    What about the US News rankings? They rank hospitals in lots of different specialities around the country.

    WooHoo! The facility I work in was ranked in the top fifty in "Heart and Heart Surgery". How cool. I love my job and we have a nice facility with caring people. It's nice to see.

    Nursing-wise look for hospitals with Magnet designation. It is a national recognition program that hospitals apply for, specifically nursing

    Inquire how the rankings are done. I worked for a surgeon once who submitted his own bio. Once it was printed in one newspaper, he used that as a reference. Got listed lots of time in lots of magazines, etc. when really he did no more than any other surgeon in town.
