The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore is a 1,017-bed academic medical center affiliated with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine that provides a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art patient care and has topped U.S. News and World Report's ranking of American hospitals for 16 consecutive years.
