Hospitals may use the site to update posted data and contact information, submit photos, download and read full reports on the methodology used to rank the Best Hospitals and Best Children's Hospitals, and preview embargoed upcoming rankings, according to a statement from the publication. "We will add fields over time as Best Hospitals continues to evolve," the statement reads. "We invite suggestions from hospital professionals for additional content and operational capabilities."
