U.S. News and World Report on Tuesday released its list of the best hospitals across the country. The top-ranking hospital in New Jersey was Hackensack University Medical Center.
No New Jersey hospitals made the top 20 nationwide list.
The rankings looked at how each hospital performs across different specialties, procedures and conditions. To compile the rankings, U.S. News and World Report used several different objective measurements such as patient survival, number of patients and staffing numbers. The publication also used survey data from qualified physicians, who were asked to name the top five hospitals in their specialty.
