Here are America’s ‘healthiest communities’

The following is an excerpt from Becker’s Hospital Review.

A New Mexico county for the third consecutive year took the top spot in U.S. News & World Report and CVS Health’s 2022 “Healthiest Communities Rankings.”

This marks the fifth annual edition of the rankings. 

The rankings are based on an analysis of nearly 3,000 U.S. communities. Communities are scored on 89 indicators across 10 categories that drive community health: population health, equity, education, economy, housing, food and nutrition, environment, crime, community stability and infrastructure.

Population health and equity are the most heavily weighted categories.

The top 5 communities are:

  1. Los Alamos County, N.M. 
  2. Falls Church, Va. 
  3. Douglas County, Colo. 
  4. Morgan County, Utah 
  5. Carver County, Minn.
