Inspira Vineland was ranked ninth, tied with two other hospitals in Monmouth and Bergen counties. The hospital earned its place among the “Best Hospitals in New Jersey” on the strength of its performance in the treatment and care of patients with Heart Failure and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. These common conditions are responsible for nearly 1.5 million hospital admissions in the United States each year. "My heart-felt thanks go out to the thousands of Inspira employees who are committed to always doing what is best for our patients," said John DiAngelo, president and CEO, Inspira Health Network. "This recognition is a reflection of their skill, hard work and dedication to excellence." Inspira Elmer was named a High Performing Hospital for knee replacement surgery, one of the most common orthopedic procedures. This recognition follows the recent announcement that Inspira Elmer received a national Women's Choice Award for its orthopedic care. “The choice of a hospital is one of the most important and costly decisions an individual makes,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis for U.S. News. “We evaluated the treatment of more than 3.6 million patients and identified a small percentage of hospitals that have superior outcomes compared with their peer institutions. Whenever possible, patients, in consultation with their doctors, should seek out high performing hospitals that excel in treating their specific condition.” U.S. News created “Best Hospitals for Common Care” to help patients find better care for the kinds of common procedures and medical conditions that account for millions of hospitalizations each year. The Best Hospitals for Common Care ratings rely on Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data for patients 65 and older, as well as survey data from the American Hospital Association and clinical registry data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
