Wondering if your city is one of the best in the United States when it comes to healthcare? Well now you have access to research from HealthGrades, an independent organization that compiled information from dozens of healthcare systems across the country from 2007 to 2009.

West Palm is one of the best cities when it comes to the quality of healthcare . Nine out of 12 hospitals reviewed in West Palm received a score of excellent when it comes to the number of deaths and the number of inpatient complications. If all hospitals in the country had performed like those that made the HealthGrades list, it is estimated that 150,000 lives could have been saved across the U.S. Imagine that!

You can learn more about the report from HealthGrades by watching the story below. Let us know what you think! How does your city rank?
