When I think of cities with best healthcare, I tend to think of cities in the Midwest like Minneapolis, St. Louis, and Cleveland and some cities in the south like Houston. What cities in your opinion have the best healthcare?

Depends on what you mean. Are you prioritizing things like non-emergency wait times and prices, the quality of ER treatment organization and results, or the presence of highly specialized staff capable of treating rare but deadly diseases?

For Boston I would say that ER treatment and specialized staff are top notch in the country. Mass General, Beth Israel, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Boston Children Hospital are all great that come to mind.

NYC (probably #1 in the country)
Baltimore (can't beat Johns Hopkins)
Philly
DC (Georgetown, Sibley, GW)
Boston

I have heard Jacksonville is good. Lots of hospitals and places like Mayo and Shands are there.

Boston is at, or near the top, with MGH, BWH, Beth Israel/Deaconness, Tufts, Boston Childrens ( No. 1) and several medical schools, including Harvard..

Cleveland, and any city with a major university health center:

Boston has the Harvard hospitals (all due respect ro BMC and NEMC, but it's not about you)
Baltimore has Hopkins
Houston has UT medical center
NYC has the Columbia, Cornel and NYU Hospitals
LA has UCLA
Chicago has Northwestern Medical Center
Pittsburgh has UPMC (PITT)
St. Louis has Wash U


Cleveland is the only city with top shelf hospitals, that doesn't have a top tier medical school.

For sheer concentration of top-ranked teaching/research hospitals along with a wide variety of specialists one would have to say overwhelmingly Boston.

Philly, best Children's Hospital in the world.
