Two of Ochsner Medical Centers have received top ratings for the state from U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of health-care facilities. The main campus in Jefferson and a satellite facility in Gretna ranked among the country’s top 50 centers in 11 of 16 specialties. They received the top local ranking last year, too.
Ochsner’s Kenner hospital was ranked second in the New Orleans area and fourth in Louisiana.
Rankings are based on objective factors such as patient-outcome data, resources, staffing and available technology, as well as subjective “reputation” rankings by doctors throughout the United States.
