Atlantic Health System's Chilton Medical Center has been once again named the top hospital in the state with less than 350 beds by Castle Connolly and Jersey's Best, in a new list published this week.
Chilton Medical Center was also named the number one hospital in the state under 350 beds for the treatment of strokes, as well as among the top two for the treatment of breast cancer, prostate cancer, hip and knee repairs, and congestive heart failure.
These results were based on physician votes and reflect Chilton Medical Center's strong reputation among physicians across the state.
"This recognition serves as a tremendous testament to the mutual spirit of trust and collaboration between our physicians, nurses and support teams, as well as the confidence physicians have in Chilton," said Stephanie Schwartz, President, Chilton Medical Center. "We are proud to again be recognized as the top mid-size hospital in New Jersey for the fourth consecutive year, and will continue to deliver the highest levels of care for our patients."
Atlantic Health System's hospitals dominated the top rankings this year with Morristown Medical Center maintaining its number one ranking, and Overlook Medical Center ascending to the number two spot among large hospitals. Goryeb Children's Hospital, and Newton and Hackettstown medical centers also all ranked among the top 5 hospitals in the "under 350 beds" category.
