The Medical Center, Navicent Health has been recognized as a top Georgia hospital for the fifth year in a row in the annual Best Hospitals compiled by U.S. News & World Report.
MCNH tied for the third best hospital in this year’s ranking and the only top performer in central Georgia. In addition, seven of the medical center’s treatments for adult conditions were recognized as high performing including:
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Colon Cancer Surgery

Heart Failure

Hip Replacement

Knee Replacement

Lung Cancer Surgery
“We have worked hard over the last five years to expand our service offerings, contribute to the economic and community development, and upgrade our facilities in Macon and Central Georgia,” said Dr. Ninfa M. Saunders, President and CEO of Navicent Health. “Being recognized as a Best Hospital in Georgia for the fifth consecutive year is incredible testimony to the extraordinary dedication of our staff to providing the highest quality to our patients.”
The fifth anniversary milestone on the U.S News list is the latest in several significant healthcare activities involving Navicent Health in recent weeks. In June, Navicent Health provided leadership to address a critical opioid crisis in Central Georgia. Later that month, Navicent Health announced the naming of its new Children’s Hospital. In July, Navicent Health was the top bidder to acquire Oconee Regional Medical Center which will enable that much-needed health care facility to remain open after bankruptcy.
