Wesley Medical Center Ranked #1 in the State for Cardiac Care, GI Care and Orthopedic Surgery
Wesley Medical Center has been named the best hospital in Mississippi for cardiac care, gastrointestinal care and orthopedic surgery, and rated among the top 50 hospitals in the nation when it comes to orthopedic surgery. CareChex, the medical quality rating service of the nation's largest privately-held health care information service company, The Delta Group, ranks Wesley Medical Center:
#1 in Mississippi for Cardiac Care

The prestige of a CareChex number one ranking is significant in part because of their comprehensive evaluation system. While many rating systems are one-dimensional, ranking only one aspect of care, CareChex calculates rankings using multi-faceted clinical data and quality indicators, including patient safety, inpatient quality, core process measures, mortality rates, complication rates and patient satisfaction rates. The fully-inclusive system makes CareChex rankings of hospital quality more statistically accurate.
Wesley Medical Center has previously been recognized by The Joint Commission as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures in the areas of Heart Attack and Heart Failure. They are also the area’s first and only accredited Chest Pain Center and have been recognized for patient safety. Their orthopedic surgery rankings put Wesley Medical Center in the top 10 percent of hospitals nationwide, according to CareChex.
