Specialty Hospitals: The Best and the Brightest

Specialty Hospitals: The Best and the Brightest


With just over 100 designated “Specialty Hospitals” in the United States, the pressure is on to not only stand out amongst your peers, but also alongside hundreds of other “General Hospitals” that may have strong specialty departments. While the debate of Specialty vs. General is still going strong, one thing is for sure: In the decade that Special Hospitals have come about, they have proven themselves to offer equal, or better, care than their General counterparts.
