Every year, Truven Health Analytics releases its Top 100 Hospitals study to recognize the best hospitals in the U.S. They just published the 2014 list…does your workplace make the cut?!

The study looks at hospitals on a facility-wide basis using independent public data. As Truven points out, “hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.”

Click through each link in the list below to find out more about the facility in our Nurse’s Guide to Hospitals. Discover which hospitals are Magnet / Pathway designated and which hospitals celebrate their nurses by participating in the DAISY awards! Already working at one of the facilities? Be sure to add your own ratings and comments.
