Several Fairfield County hospitals ranked among best in state

Yale-New Haven Hospital is the best hospital in Connecticut, but several Fairfield County facilities — including Bridgeport Hospital and  St. Vincent’s Medical Center — are also among the 10 best hospitals in the state.

That’s according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual ‘Best Hospitals’ ranked, which was announced today. The report ranked the best hospitals in the country, the best by specialty and the best in each state and in 100 metro areas. The magazine named Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Hospital the number one hospital in the country, followed by Massachusetts General Hospital, which ranked second, and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., which ranked third.

In Connecticut, Yale was named the best statewide, with Hartford Hospital ranked number two, and St. Francis Hospital in Hartford landing at number three.  The fourth best hospital in the state was St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport. Middlesex Hospital in Middletown rounded out the top five.

Other Fairfield County hospitals ranked among the state’s 10 best included Norwalk Hospital (number six), Danbury Hospital (number seven) and Bridgeport Hospital and Stamford Hospital (tied with Lawarence and Memorial in New London for number nine).
