Atlanta's Top Hospitals

Atlanta’s Top Hospitals 2016

Healthgrades, a leading healthcare research firm, tracks hospital performance across dozens of conditions and procedures. Here is the list of metro Atlanta hospitals that received a five-star clinical quality rating—which indicates a performance that was statistically significantly better than expected—in one or more areas of care.

Walking away from a car crash

I didn’t see it coming, but when the other Honda crashed into the passenger side of my Civic it felt like an explosion inside my car. What had happened? Was I badly hurt? I didn’t know.

Ultimate stroke care

Georgia Regents Medical Center is the first hospital in Georgia—and one of only 20 hospitals in the country—to be named an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center. That gives the Augusta hospital serious bragging rights over its counterparts in metro Atlanta.

Morehouse research to-go

Morehouse School of Medicine recently unveiled what they say is the state's first mobile high-tech research unit equipped for research, prevention, and services. Using it, they can go to rural areas and let people take part in research trials, such as diabetes and stroke prevention studies.

Cancer study ready to launch

Helping cancer research is about a lot more than donating money. The Atlanta-based American Cancer Society is in the final stages of the enrollment drive for its third Cancer Prevention Study, CPS-3. The call is out for up to 5,000 metro area men and women 30-65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer. The purpose of the study is to better understand the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that affect a person's risk of developing or dying of cancer.

The Chief Complaint

For a man with such respectable bona fides—University of Chicago medical school graduate, trained in oncology at the National Cancer Institute, Emory professor, and currently chief medical officer at the American Cancer Society—Dr. Otis Brawley sure knows how to piss people off.
