    Based on one measure, the best hospital system in the country is Tarrant County's taxpayer-supported JPS Health Network.

    JPS is rated number one by Washington Monthly Magazine whose survey specifically includes factors like cost and service to what are described as "vulnerable communities." 

    The magazine's editors ask: "why can't more hospitals be like JPS? Shouldn't every person in this country have access to a hospital that provides high-quality care, welcomes all comers regardless of wealth and insurance status, and contributes to the larger health of the community?"

    Dallas County's taxpayer-supported Parkland is ranked ninth.
