ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of the Best Hospitals 2013-14 rankings. The ranking's validity was questioned by Ezekiel Emanuel of the University of Pennsylvania while MSNBC's Morning Joe described it as pretty worthless. The author admits that there is flaw in the methodology used by the study, like how many other methodology are faced with limitations of design and available data. He explains the difference between the Best Hospitals ranking with that of Hospital Compare.
