More East Coast bias. Mayo is #1 in my mind.

Talk to anyone who has trained or worked at both institutions. They will tell you Mayo is hands-down the best there is for patient care. Hopkins is mainly a research center.

It sounds like a fairy land to us even we live here in MN. Its accessibility, affordability, convenience are definitely, respectively bottom of our list when comparing to all local hospitals around. Maybe we hope and pray we never have to consider life/deadth versus affordability.

Why didn't you report on the Twin Cities' hospitals...you know...the ones that most of your readers use? Abbott Northwestern was #1 in the metro and #2 in the state.

At Mayo it matters who you are and the doctor. I had a terrible experience and I am sure that I am not the only one. We either have to be famous or news worthy to matter at Mayo Clinic.

I've been going to Mayo for years and have had mostly good results to speak of. That doesn't mean I've never run into a poor experience here and there. Anything run & operated by human beings is fallible. One comment I can make is the number of out-of-state visitors I often chat with more often than not point to having a much better experience than where they may have been referred from. This includes hospital systems on the east coast, west coast and other large metropolitan areas.
