Four NJ Hospitals Ranked Among Top in United States

Four hospitals in New Jersey have been ranked among the best in the nation by Healthgrades, which evaluates thousands of hospitals across the country each year. 

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.

  1. Healthgrades lists 250 Top Hospitals of the 50 states, NJ made it to only 4 of them & NJ ranks only 17th of 50.
    I would say Morristown Medical Center is Tops in NJ; they’re part of Atlantic Health System which is the best.
    The local geriatricians in the Lakewood area are very good, but for cardiology I drive up 1 hr. 40 min. each way to Morristown.
    Maimonides is supposed to be the best in cardiology, but since Obamacare I can only use NJ doctors, I’m very pleased with Morristown.
