Healthgrades, a Denver-based health care data company, released its list of the top 100 U.S. cities “getting health care right,” and Philadelphia cracked the top 10.
Cities were ranked in the Healthgrades 2019 National Health Index based on 14 variables that included a population’s overall health, whether consumers had good access to doctors, if local specialists achieved high marks in patient satisfaction and if patients had access to high quality hospitals.
Rochester, Minn, ranked at the top of the list followed by Burlington, Vt, and Charleston, S.C. Philadelphia, which placed sixth, finished one spot behind Baltimore and one spot ahead of Gainesville, Fla.
