BALTIMORE (AP) — Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore has regained its place atop U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings of the nation’s best hospitals.

Last year, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston was in the top spot, displacing Johns Hopkins, which had been ranked No. 1 for 21 consecutive years. Massachusetts General is ranked second for 2013.

Eighteen hospitals made the magazine’s Honor Roll of the best hospitals in the country. To make the list, hospitals had to achieve a high ranking in at least six of 16 medical specialties.

Johns Hopkins was ranked No. 1 in ear, nose and throat; geriatrics; neurology and neurosurgery; rheumatology; and urology.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., was ranked third, followed by the Cleveland Clinic and UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
