Norfolk General Hospital is a Top Notch Hospital. It was one of the first hospitals in the U.S. to pioneer heart surgery. My brother had an operation there and he was walking around the next day! UVA is also in a class to itself!

Here on the western side of the state, most think that UVa is tops in the state. VCU is actually a more prestigious hospital... and I would say that it is the institution that is really in a class to itself.

UVA used to be tops in the state, it's really puzzling that, despite the massive amounts of money and research, UVA has continued to drop in the rankings. I think it all started with the baby swap scandal in the late 90s..

I'm surprised that VCU/MCV is rated higher than UVA. Always thought that UVA was the best hospital between Duke and Johns Hopkins. So I guess I have learned something today. One more way that UVA has slipped over the past couple of decades. Dragas & Co. should be proud, along with a General Assembly which establishes mandates for UVA but doesn't bother funding them.

I was in the dark about this until about two years ago. I don't think it is an issue of UVa going backwards, but one of MCV going forwards. It also might have to do with the fact that MCV has a much larger population base to work with. Most of the elite hospitals seem to be in large metros as opposed to small metros. I'd guess that UVa still has the edge in Virginia for law students, though.

Well yeah, but there's no contest for law schools!
The second-highest rated is W&L and it's well behind UVA.

Back on topic, I've had occasion to visit three of the nation's best teaching hospitals. Johns Hopkins, Yale-New Haven, and Mass General. All three obviously had blinding expertise on tap, and enjoyed obviously well-funded facilities. But I'd choose Mass General if I could because the others (because of their locations) tilted toward 'ghetto' patient populations and I mean that in a socio-economic way, not a racial way. I'm probably too far out on a limb already wrt the p.c. police anyway, so make of it what you will.
