“At Jersey City Medical Center, we are committed to providing high-quality specialty care to our patients,” JCMC President and CEO Michael Prilutsky said in a statement.

“It’s wonderful to be recognized for our hard work by Healthgrades and receive such prestigious awards. The Medical Center will continue providing world-class treatment to Hudson and surrounding county residents.”

Healthgrades evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 31 common conditions and procedures at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top-performing hospitals for sepsis and hip fracture treatment.

This year’s analysis revealed significant variation in patient outcomes between five-star hospitals and one-star hospitals.

“We commend Jersey City Medical Center for their ongoing commitment to providing high-quality care to patients being treated for sepsis or patients undergoing hip surgery,” Healthgrades Chief Medial Officer and Head of Data Science Dr. Brad Bowman.

“Consumers can feel confident that hospitals with five-star ratings by Healthgrades have demonstrated their ability to deliver consistently exceptional outcomes.”

  1. My few experiences in the JCMC ER have been uniformly terrible. But if I get sepsis or a hip fracture, I’ll be sure to go there. For literally anything else, I’ll drive to Hackensack or take the train to NYC. One of the real downsides to living in JC is the lack of adequate city health care facilities. If I were anywhere near Medicare age, I’d be out in a heartbeat. Well, except for the hip fracture thing.

  2. With all the Cutbacks @ the JCMC & ALL The Inexperienced Nurses & PA Christ Hospital Makes The Medical Center Look Like Amateurs . I’m A 59 Year Life Long Resident & Things Are Bad . They More Worried About The Scenery Than They Are Of The Patients. The Almighty Dollar SAD !
