#1 in GA & Top 10 in The Nation!CareChex, A Division of COMPARION
About This AwardNortheast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) isn't just Georgia's #1 Hospital for the third consecutive year, it's also among the top 10 in the nation for the second consecutive year according to a recent study by an independent healthcare quality rating service.
The CareChex study includes virtually all U.S. hospitals (general, acute, non-federal) and measures them across several categories including quality of medical care, outcomes of care and patient satisfaction.
"We are always excited when we receive awards that first and foremost recognize how well we clinically treat you as a patient, but it means a little bit more when we're also recognized for the way we respectfully treat you as a person," says Carol Burrell, president and CEO of Northeast Georgia Health System. "It's a passion for excellence that fuels our entire team – clinical staff, support staff, providers, board members, volunteers and leaders – to bring their best every day."
The CareChex study also rated NGMC #1 in Georgia for Overall Hospital Care, Stroke Care, Women’s Health and Cardiac Care – which marks the eleventh year in a row NGMC is rated Georgia's #1 Heart Hospital.
