HSS was nationally ranked No. 1 in orthopedics, No. 2 in rheumatology and No. 19 in neurology by U.S. News & World Report (2011–12). HSS has been top-ranked in the northeast for both orthopedics and rheumatology for the 21 consecutive years. In addition, Consumer Reports ranked HSS the best hospital in NYC according to a patient satisfaction study.
