Posted on Jul 23, 2013
How do you find the best hospital in North Carolina? Our medical malpractice lawyers in Raleigh reviewed the latest reports released from US News & World Report.
Although WakeMed Health and Hospitals ranks fourth in the entire state, their healthcare system is #1 in Wake County. Admitting over 36,000 patients last year, WakeMed performed highly in cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology, and urology. 3 out of 4 patients who were discharged from WakeMed say they would recommend the hospital to friends and family.
How did hospitals rank in North Carolina? According to US News & World Report, the top five hospitals in the state are:
- Duke University Medical Center (Durham)
- Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (Winston-Salem)
- University of North Carolina Hospitals (Chapel Hill)
- Duke Regional Hospital (Durham)
- Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center (Charlotte)
Even if your hospital repeatedly tops the charts for patient satisfication, fewest complaints, and best healthcare services, negligence can occur anywhere.
