The rankings were compiled by using publicly available information from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on quality of care, patient satisfaction, mortality, re-admission statistics and hospital-acquired infection data.

Richardson said the top 10 distinction would not be possible without the dedication of physicians, nurses, therapists, technicians and other support staff.

"It's not just about facilities and technology, it's our people who come together each and every day as a team to make it work," said Richardson. "They are dedicated to delivering topnotch medical services with the utmost courtesy and compassion."
