U.S. News & World Report has recognized the Neurology and Neurosurgery programs at Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville and Baptist Medical Center South as "High Performing" in their annual best hospitals list. In addition, the two hospitals ranked No. 2 in the metro Jacksonville region, and 11th best hospital in Florida.
A hospital can earn a High Performing ranking for U.S. News' Best Hospital Procedures and Conditions in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes.
State- and metro-area rankings reflect the highest performing hospitals in the area across multiple areas of care.
For the 2022-2023 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide. The U.S. News Procedures & Conditions methodology is based entirely on objective measures of quality such as survival rates, patient experience, and how successfully each hospital helps patients get back home.
"Any time Baptist Jacksonville is recognized for its performance, it is a credit to our caregivers and their dedication to providing patient- and family-centered care," said Nicole B. Thomas, FACHE, hospital president of Baptist Jacksonville.
"To be recognized among 4,500 medical centers throughout the U.S. is a tremendous accomplishment and we are honored. It's a tribute to our team members who serve our patients with the highest level of quality and care every day," said Kyle Dorsey, FACHE, hospital president of Baptist South.
In June, Wolfson Children's Hospital was ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the 50 Best Children's Hospitals for Pediatric Neurology & Neurosurgery.
