Courtesy of Citybizlist – Baltimore was named the top city for hospital care in a report that examined patient death and complication rates at approx. 5,000 hospitals.
To arrive at its rankings, HealthGrades, which compiled the report, said that it looked for hospitals performing in the top five percent nationwide across 26 different medical procedures and diagnoses, then ranked cities by the highest percentage of those hospitals.
Nine Baltimore hospitals made the cut:
