Congratulations to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center on their ranking as New Jersey's fifth best hospital, according to the 2018 U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals in New Jersey rankings.

The report gives AtlantiCare high performance ratings in three adult specialties and four procedures and conditions. U.S News explains that a "high performing" rating means a hospital was not nationally ranked but was significantly better than average in a specialty.

AtlantiCare earned the high performance ranking in adult specialty categories of Diabetes and Endocrinology, Gastroenterology and Orthopedics and for their COPD, Heart Failure, Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement specialties.

This is good news for all our hardworking friends at AtlantiCare and for anyone in South Jersey who wants the best hospital care without having to travel a long distance to get it.
