Two Chicago hospitals have been named as some of the best hospitals in the country, according to a new report.

U.S. News and World Report's annual list of "America's Best Hospitals," released Tuesday, ranks the top 20 "Honor Roll" hospitals on a point system, evaluating overall performance at 4,300 hospitals in specific specialties, traditional and alternative treatments, as well as processes for common procedures and conditions like congestive heart failure, diabetes, hip and knee replacements, stroke, cancer surgeries and more.

According to the report, the hospitals that made the top 20 "Honor Roll" ranked with "unusual competence taking into account the full range of adult inpatient care." Additionally, U.S. News and World Report said that "a hospital's stance on data transparency was also a factor."

In Chicago, Northwestern Memorial Hospital came in at No. 9, and Rush University Medical Center came in at No. 20.
