  • Black residents have equitable preventive care in one hospital’s service area

The Treasure Coast is home to top-notch hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2022-2023 Best Hospitals rankings.

Each of the region’s seven hospitals scored in the top 10% nationwide in at least one condition or procedure, having received “high performing” marks as opposed to “average” or “below average.”

However, all local hospitals demonstrated a “significant disparity” in readmission prevention, the report shows. Black patients were at a higher risk than white patients of being readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of being discharged after certain surgical procedures.

In another racial disparity, the proportion of nonwhite patients treated at several hospitals was smaller than the proportion of nonwhite residents living in the surrounding area.
