Top Psychiatric Hospitals in the U.S. | January 10, 2013


The U.S. News & World Report’s annual psychiatric hospital survey is valued for its integrity, its impartiality and the method by which each hospital is rated.

Criteria for the survey is: hospital reputation and satisfaction…details of the services provided…plus patients’ feedback about their experiences.

The 15 hospitals ranked in Psychiatry were named as among the best for challenging cases and procedures by at least 5 percent of the psychiatric specialists who responded to U.S. News surveys in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Another 167 hospitals received nominations from one or more physicians. They are listed alphabetically, below the ranked hospitals.

So if you’re looking for an evaluation, recommendation, doctor or referral, I think you should carefully consider these hospitals and their credentials…

#1  Johns Hopkins Hospital — Baltimore, MD

#2 McLean Hospital — Belmont, MA

#3  Massachusetts General Hospital — Boston, MA

#4  Menninger Clinic — Houston, TX

#5  New York-Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell — New York, NY

#6  Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital — Baltimore, MD

#7  Mayo Clinic — Rochester, MN

#8  Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA — Los Angeles, CA

#9  UPMC-University of Pittsburgh Medical Center — Pittsburgh, PA

#10 Austen Riggs Center — Stockbridge, MA

#11  Yale-New Haven Hospital — New Haven, CT

#12  Stanford Hospital and Clinics — Palo Alto, CA

#13  Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University — Saint Louis, MO

#14  Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania — Philadelphia, PA

#15  Emory University Hospital — Atlanta, GA

  3. I think there should be a disabled /eperpeic person to go on a walkrounds in the hospitals with a meber of staff but see if they have a patients voice meetings thats what they call it over here its were they all meet up and chate. And regarding the medicaion and G Ps ialso i feel that we should make it aware whats happeng because theres many peole out ther isnt there just haveing to put up with this and its us as peole /paitients chilchen reling on the doctors consaltants who give these medicasions in the fist place whom were to trust , prohaps get more people involved somehow too by getting there storys .

  4. I agree!

    I also think nurses should be thoroughly trained. And in addition to group therapy (Which over here is at LEAST once a day), they should have support groups — moderated by a psychiatrist or neurologist — where people can ask questions, voice concerns, vent and support each other.

      • A good idea. But keep in mind, those who are mentally impaired may not be able to fill out a questionnaire. :-(

  6. I couldn’t agree more. That’s why we formed an epilepsy support group IN a hospital.

    For people to ask questions, voice their concerns, get answers, reassurement and help.
