Five of the state's more than 70 hospitals have ranked among America's 250 Best Hospitals for 2022, as compiled by Healthgrades.

The medical centers in Union, Morris, Monmouth, Bergen and Essex counties ranked among the top 5% in the nation for overall clinical excellence for the current year, based on analysis of nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide.

Such analysis included treatments across 17 rated conditions and procedures where mortality is the outcome — meaning those that made the list delivered better outcomes than 95% of hospitals in the nation, according to Healthgrades.

The five New Jersey hospitals honored as among either America's 50 Best Hospitals, or America's 250 Best Hospitals for 2022 are as follows.
