Anyone who has had experience with the Jackson Parish Hospital (JPH) over the last couple of years knows that continuous strides have been made that has allowed the local healthcare facility to be rated as one of the top hospitals in the state. This has been further evidenced by an article that was published in Louisiana Life Magazine where the JPH was recognized as one of the Top Hospitals in the state of Louisiana.
There is one major source that provides credible ongoing analysis of hospitals: Medicare, which, as the federal health insurance program for people 65 and older, as well as certain younger people with disabilities, often provides funding for many of the big bills. As part of its informational services, medicare.gov reports on evaluations of hospitals based on queries of patients.
The Louisiana Life editorial staff sifts through the data every year in order to create a one-of-a-kind list that demonstrates the state’s hospitals according to locality. To qualify for this list, at least 60 percent of the patients queried had to give the hospital a top overall ranking of 9 or 10 (on a scale from 0 [lowest] to 10 [highest]).
These are the top general service hospitals as seen through the eyes of those who have experienced them firsthand — the patients. Note, however, that several hospitals in the state did not have any information available on Medicare’s website and therefore could not qualify to be on the list.
“On behalf of the administration and staff of the Jackson Parish Hospital we are extremely pleased to be selected as one of the top hospitals in the state by this fine publication,” said JPH CEO John Morgan. “We are not always perfect, but we work hard to try and be the best.”
