Top Hospitals in Indiana and Illinois According to Various 2014 Best Lists

Top Hospitals in Indiana and Illinois According to Various 2014 Best Lists


Where are the best hospitals in our part of the country? Depends upon who you ask, apparently.

Here are Indiana and Illinois hospitals who have been given high marks in three different awards compulations, and it’s interesting to see how these facilities overlap (or, more importantly, don’t pop up on various awards lists).

Feel free to surf around for other lists, there are more lists out there … and if you think that a defense lawyer won’t try and use one of these top ranking lists as a “fact” that the hospital that has been sued for malpractice is a stellar facility that does no wrong, well — think again:

US News and World Report

There are too many to list here under their awards qualifications.

Here’s a list that would be good to see:  which hospitals got sued the most (or the least) for malpractice or wrongful death or settled the most (or the least) negligence or wrongful care claims in the past five years?  That would be a good list to compare, right?
