By Mark Sunshine | Jul 30, 2021

Hospital Rankings Earlier today, U.S. News published its annual Best Hospitals Honor Roll and not a single Florida-based hospital was ranked nationally in the top 20.  It is surprising that Florida does not have a single hospital in the top 20, since Florida is the third most populous state in the nation and is relatively affluent.  …
