Jersey Shore University Medical Center was ranked in the top 250 hospitals, Morristown Medical Center is ranked one of America’s top 50 hospitals, Overlook Medical Center is considered one of the top 50 hospitals, and Valley Hospital was ranked one of the top 250 hospitals in the nation.
Besides for being ranked as one of the top hospitals, JSUMC was also awarded by Healthgrades for being a top-100 hospital in stroke care and for excellence in bariatric surgery and neuroscience.
The rankings were made by researchers who looked at the Medicare and Medicaid data from over 4,500 hospitals in the US over a three year period and analyzed their performance in treating patients with dozens of different medical conditions.
According to Healthgrades, patients treated in their list of the top hospitals in the US had a 27.4% decreased chance of dying than those with the same condition being treated in an unranked hospital. If all hospitals had the same performance results as those on their top-hospitals list, 167,235 lives could have been saved, Healthgrades said in a release.
