Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Wilkes Medical Center has been named as a Best Hospital in America by Money, formerly known as Money Magazine.
Money collaborated with The Leapfrog Group to compile their inaugural list of the top hospitals in the country, using data from 39 performance measures from Leapfrog's fall 2021 Hospital Safety Grades. Wilkes Medical Center is among 148 hospitals across the U.S. and one of only six in North Carolina to be included in the list.
According to Money, the goal of the list is to help patients make decisions about which hospitals are best for their money.
"We are honored to be a big part of our Wilkes community and are committed to providing safe, convenient, high quality and compassionate care, to everyone who counts on us," said Chad Brown, president of Wilkes Medical Center. "I am so grateful to our entire team for their dedication to our patients and their loved ones and we are very pleased to receive this national recognition."
Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Davie Medical Center is also included in the list.
