In a nationwide survey, psychiatrists selected The Menninger Clinic as a top psychiatric hospital, ranking it #5 on U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Hospitals list.
A Texas Medical Center institution offering treatment services for adolescents and adults who have psychiatric disorders that may occur alongside substance use or other conditions, Menninger has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report for 30 consecutive years.
In psychiatry, the U.S. News & World Report’s rankings distinguish the best hospitals for patients experiencing difficult-to-treat disorders and are based on survey responses from 2017 to 2019 from physicians nationwide who are board certified in psychiatry.
“We’re grateful for the referring clinicians across the country who continuously recognize Menninger’s expertise in providing quality mental health diagnosis and treatment to patients,” said John M. Oldham, MD, MS, Menninger’s chief of staff. “Our clinical teams take pride in delivering the latest evidence-based treatments that provide hope and healing to patients and their families.”
Oldham adds that the high ranking demonstrates the level of care provided by Menninger’s clinicians as well as their passion to achieve lasting quality outcomes for patients. Menninger’s physicians and psychologists hold academic appointments through its affiliate Baylor College of Medicine.
During the three-year survey period, Menninger treated patients from all 50 states and 18 countries through five specialty inpatient programs. Treatment options include the Adolescent Treatment Program, the Comprehensive Psychiatric Assessment Service, the Compass Program for Young Adults, the Hope Program for Adults and the Professionals Program.

In addition to its inpatient programs, Menninger offers comprehensive assessments, day treatment for adolescents, outpatient therapy, medication management, community integration programming and home-based services.
