San Francisco’s UCSF Medical Center cracked the Top 10 of a list of the country’s best hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report on Tuesday.

The 650-bed hospital ranked 8th. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, topped the magazine's list.

The clinic led the annual rankings for the first time. Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston came in second on the publication’s "Honor Roll." John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland — which headed the list for 21 years until 2012 — was third.

Just 17 made the cut of nearly 5,000 hospitals and medical centers that were ranked, according to U.S. News. Only New York, Boston and Los Angeles notched more than one facility on the list for 2014-15.

Hospitals earned a spot on the Honor Roll if they had very high scores in at least six of 16 specialties, ranging from cancer to urology.

Rankings could differ within the specialties. For example, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York was first for cancer treatment; Cleveland Clinic for cardiology and heart surgery.

U.S. News also ranked nearly 600 other hospitals on a list of best regional hospitals.
