10 'best hospital cities' in the US

Boston has the best overall hospital ecosystem of any city in the U.S., according to an analysis by Medbelle, a digital healthcare company based in London.

To identify the "best hospital cities" in the U.S. and the world, Medbelle compared cities on 12 metrics that fell into one of the following three categories: quality of care, infrastructure and access. The metrics range from surgeons per capita to cost of medicine. Each factor was graded on a 100-point scale, and the cities were ranked from highest overall score to lowest.

"The U.S. has the highest number of top-ranking hospital cities and leads the world in medical universities, however, U.S. cities rank low among developed countries when it comes to access," Daniel Kolb, co-founder and managing director of Medbelle, said in a release.

Boston ranked No. 2 on the list of 100 best hospital cities in the world. It was the only U.S. city to crack the top 10.

Here are the top 10 hospital cities in the U.S. based on the analysis:

1. Boston (total score of 99.64 out of 100)
