I’m proud to report UF Health Jacksonville has once again been named one of the best hospitals by Healthgrades, a national organization that rates hospitals across the country. Healthgrades placed UF Health Jacksonville in the top 250 hospitals, or the top 5%, for clinical quality.
This is the third year in a row we have received the distinction, which is based on delivering exceptional, comprehensive, quality care. We also received three 2021 Specialty Clinical Quality Awards for coronary intervention excellence, cranial neurosurgery excellence and pulmonary care excellence.
Another milestone coming up is a visit from the American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Recognition program appraisers. UF Health Jacksonville Nursing earned this designation in 2011 and 2016, maintaining our status as a Magnet organization for 10 years. The Magnet program is nationally recognized as the gold standard of nursing excellence. The designation recognizes health care organizations that provide successful nursing practices and strategies, and signifies that with our nurses, patients receive the very best care possible.
