In a recent Patch article, they examined hospitals around the nation and how New Jersey healthcare ranked according to Healthgrades, an online physician and hospital locator. "Healthgrades evaluated 4,500 hospitals across more than 30 common procedures and conditions to determine the 250 that received 2024 America’s Best Hospitals Awards." So out of nearly 5,000 hospitals, 10 New Jersey hospitals were ranked in the Top 250 nationwide, well done.

How do you feel about healthcare here in New Jersey? Are you satisfied? Do you feel confident when you go to a hospital here in New Jersey? In full transparency, I have been dealing with a health issue for a couple of years. I have had some issues with an irregular heartbeat, and the diagnosis of AFib (Atrial Fibrillation). It's an issue that if not treated can raise my chance of stroke, but I'm in good hands and have no major issues, but I have been involved with healthcare here in New Jersey more in the last 3 years than I have in my entire life. To treat this medical condition I have had lots of testing and a few procedures in area hospitals and I am very satisfied with their performance. I feel fine, but I do have medications and need to watch my diet and exercise, more exercise, less food lol. As far as healthcare here in New Jersey, I give it two thumbs up, agree?
