The publication selected hospitals to include in this list based on several outside rankings and ratings organizations, including U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, CMS, The Leapfrog Group and The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital was specifically recognized for having:
- A 24-hour full-service ED and helipad
