    No.
    Move to Baltimore.

    Hopkins is by far the best.
    Not just overall #1
    But in 16 categories
    #1 - three categories
    #2 - five categories
    #3 - five categories


    In the top 10 Ten in 15 out of 16 categories
    in the top twenty for 16th category
    In the top 10 for 9/10 categories - Children's Medicine
    (Beat out a lot of the"Childrens" Hospitals)

    #1 Ranking past 19 years

    Many good hospitals do not get ranked in even one category which is not to say they are not good.

    And everyone who works there seems to be so nice.
    Patients are treated well down to every detail.

    No, because if you move again, then you have to change your name again.
