We Are Ranked in the Top 1% in the Nation

Jim Nathan Lee Memorial Health System received another impressive recognition from Healthgrades—HealthPark Medical Center and Lee Memorial Hospital have been ranked as one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals in the United States. This places these hospitals in the Top 1% of more than 4,500 hospitals in the nation!

This award is the result of the health system ranking in the Top 5% nationwide for the past eight years—which in itself is the result of our team’s talents, professionalism, hard work and dedication. It also ranks us among other prestigious systems, including Mayo Clinic Hospital, Phoenix; Saint Vincent Medical Center, Los Angeles; and New York-Presbyterian/Weil Cornell Medical Center, New York.

According to the Healthgrades Hospitals Quality Clinical Excellence Report: 2014—Finding the Keys to Quality, “These hospitals are differentiated by their overall clinical excellence and have exhibited superior performance in clinical outcomes for patients across a broad spectrum of care.”

Healthgrades does its due diligence to provide accurate ratings of hospitals and physicians in order to help consumers make informed decisions. Lee Memorial Health System is honored, once again, by this fair and impartial verification of our quality, as well as the national recognition of our care. We couldn’t do all we do for our patients and our community without each and every person on our team.

Visit to see all of the Top 50 Best Hospitals in the nation.
