U.S. News Announces Best Hospitals of 2017-18
U.S. News and World Report recently released its “Best Hospitals” list, an annual ranking of the top hospitals and medical facilities nationwide and regionally. These rankings are filled with hospitals and providers here in South Florida, in Florida-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties. Notably, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute was ranked for the 14th consecutive year as the top ophthalmologic provider by the publication. Baptist Hospital of Florida was rated the top hospital of the 64 ranked hospitals in South Florida, with the Cleveland Clinic Florida in Weston, Holy Cross Hospital, Memorial Regional Hospital, and the University of Florida Hospital rounding out the top five.
Unfortunately, while these rankings are certainly laudable, they do not eliminate the risk of negligence when you entrust your care, or the care of a loved one, with the medical professionals at these facilities. Nurses and doctors, even the best in their field, are simply not immune from committing negligence. Our team of experienced lawyers has successfully pursued claims related to many of the facilities named as “top hospitals” due to failures across a wide variety of specialties, including emergency care, pre- and neonatal care, cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, and hematology. Patients are subjected to sub-standard every day, and we are prepared to be your advocate to remedy the wrongs perpetrated by poor medical care
