Anyone who lives in northern Colorado knows how amazing it is around here; and now we have proof that even our hospitals are some of the best in the country.

Healthgrades released its list of the top hospitals in the nation on Tuesday, according to BizWest.

SCL Health's Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette made the top 100 list (i.e. top 2 percent in the country).

Banner Health's North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley made the top 50; that puts it in the top one percent in the nation!

The company’s 2016 Best Hospitals study looked in particular at clinical outcomes for many of the most common inpatient conditions and procedures from the years 2012 to 2014.
