GEORGIA — U.S. News & World Report has released its latest list of the nation’s top hospitals. In Georgia, no hospitals made the honor roll, and 16 were on the state’s best hospitals list.
The publication ranked the best hospitals overall, by specialty, state and region for 2019–2020.
“We use a number of different measures to assess hospital quality, and we separately assess each hospital in many different specialties and services that hospitals offer,” Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News, told Patch. The 2019 rankings added two new patient-centered measures: patient outcome and patient experience.
