Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Delos “Toby” Cosgrove released the annual "State of the Clinic” report which is an interesting reading and an excellent example of how transparent an organization should be.
Although the hospital is the site of many "firsts" in healthcare, Dr. Cosgrove points to a survey which reveals that Cleveland Clinic has just 25% national name recognition as compared to 80% for Mayo Clinic and 90% for Johns Hopkins. The free Google Trends tool shows a similar picture.
Having an academic appointment at the Clinic and working there full time, I think it has a very good chance of being rated the top hospital in the country in not too distant future, surpassing its 2 biggest competitors :)
The Wikipedia article about the Clinic has also been expanded substantially recently.
