When you're sick, it is good to know that you are in excellent hands in New Jersey.  U.S. News and World Report just evaluated more than 4,500 hospitals in 15 specialties and 19 procedures and you will be proud to know that New Jersey represents itself with excellence. This is information I really want to know before someone I love gets sick. 

Morristown Medical Center was named New Jersey's very best hospital, out of 4,500 hospitals, it ranked 46th in cardiology and heart surgery, 28th in obstetrics and gynecology, and 23rd in orthopedics.  Pretty impressive.

We can also be exceptionally proud of how these other New Jersey hospitals placed:

  • No. 2 in New Jersey: Hackensack University Medical Center, Hackensack

It is good to know we are in the best place for some of the best care.  I also have to give a shout-out to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.  They saved my family member’s life with their brilliant brain surgery angels.
