Jacksonville, FL - Memorial Hospital has been named a “U.S. News & World Report Best Regional Hospital” in the publication’s annual Best Hospitals issue.
Memorial Hospital was ranked high-performing, meaning it scored in the top 25% of hospitals nationwide, in six medical specialties:
- Diabetes & Endocrinology
- Gastroenterology & GI Surgery
- Neurology & Neurosurgery
The hospital rankings, said U.S. News Health Rankings Editor Avery Comarow, are like a GPS-type aid to help steer patients to hospitals with strong skills in the procedures and medical conditions that present the biggest challenges. “All of these hospitals are the kinds of medical centers that should be on your list when you need the best care,” said Comarow.
U.S. News & World Report takes into account patient survival rates, patient safety rates, technology and patient services offered.
