These 7 New Jersey hospitals are among the best in the country
Accidents happen and sometimes they end up with you in the hospital. Whether it's a routine visit, a medical emergency, or a scheduled surgery, we have all made that expensive trip to the hospital.
Hospitals can be scary. Especially if you're not familiar with how reliable they are. Well here is your answer. Newsweek released their yearly "World's Best Hospital- United States list" for 2022. However, this isn't the first time a website has said New Jersey has some of the top hospitals.
There were 414 hospitals ranked across the United States and New Jersey had seven of them in the rankings.
The rankings were decided by three factors. Peer recommendation was 50% of the final score. While patient experience counted for 15%.
Also, medical KPIs (KPI is a well-defined performance measure that is used to observe, analyze, optimize, and transform a healthcare process to increase satisfaction for both patients and healthcare providers alike) counted for 30%.
Over 80,000 medical experts participated in the rankings. They were asked to recommend hospitals they thought were the best. The key here was that they were not allowed to pick their employer.
