St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa Named One of the Leading Hospitals in America

TAMPA, Fla., April 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- St. Joseph's Hospital, a member of BayCare Health System, has been recognized as one of the leading hospitals in the United States, in a study led by Consumers' Checkbook. It will be published in the May/June issue of AARP The Magazine.

Consumers' Checkbook is a nonprofit research organization that surveyed doctors from across the country to identify the most highly regarded hospitals and medical facilities in the nation.

The poll, which collected 140,000 ratings of hospitals, listed St. Joseph's Hospital as the most highly rated hospital in the Tampa Bay area with the next closest facilities being in Sarasota and Orlando.

St. Joseph's Hospital was one of 10 hospitals in Florida included in the list of top 10 hospitals in Florida, with 70 percent of doctors rating the hospital as very good or excellent.

Results from the study are now available online.

"The Consumers' Checkbook study rates hospitals throughout the country based on patient safety and outcomes, and recognizes our efforts to provide the best possible care for our community," said Isaac Mallah, president and chief executive officer of St. Joseph's Hospital. "We are proud of these excellent results, which come directly from doctors' recommendations."
