Barnes-Jewish Hospital was rated the best hospital in Missouri, according to a new U.S. News analysis that ranked the top medical facilities in states and metro areas. 

The St. Louis hospital is nationally ranked in 11 adult specialties, the U.S. News study reported.

The news website crafted the study because Americans often cannot travel long distances for care and must choose among the top hospitals within their metro area or state.

The hospital rankings are based on a facility’s performance within ratings for specialty adult care, such as geriatrics or cancer care, and its scores on 10 procedures/conditions analyzed in the study, according to U.S. News.
