An independent health-care ratings organization, Healthgrades, surveyed about 4,500 hospitals and ranked Great Falls' Benefis Health System among the top 100 in the country. Benefis Health System is the only hospital in Montana to make the list of top 100.

The ratings company determines hospital's ranking based on patients mortality and complication rates in 27 common conditions.

I'm glad to know that Montana has at least one hospital on the list but wish it was a bit closer to Bozeman. Maybe we will make the list next year.
