10 from New Jersey recognized as ‘America’s Best Hospitals for 2024’ by Healthgrades

Ten hospitals from New Jersey have been named to America’s Best Hospitals for 2024, according to new research released by Healthgrades on Tuesday. This year’s achievements recognize the national leaders in overall clinical excellence and the top-ranked hospitals for specialty care by state. Three facilities landed in the Top 100 and two of those in the best 50.

Healthgrades has been recognized as one of the leading sources Americans use to find a doctor or hospital.

To determine the Top 250 U.S. hospitals, Healthgrades evaluated clinical performance for approximately 4,500 hospitals across more than 30 common procedures and conditions. In tandem with this national recognition, Healthgrades measured the hospitals across 18 key specialty areas to identify the highest-ranking hospitals in 32 eligible states.

“Hospital quality is a crucial, yet often overlooked, factor to consider when choosing a doctor,” Dr. Brad Bowman, chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades, said. “Healthgrades is dedicated to taking the guesswork out of the equation by providing consumers with a reliable, data-driven platform to identify reputable hospitals in their area. We want to give patients the confidence they’re choosing the highest quality health care.”
