WalletHub Study: NJ The State With The Worst Health Infrastructure for COVID-19

COVID-19 has exposed weaknesses in the country’s healthcare system, from 6a00d8341bf7d953ef025d9b42137a200c-200pisupplies to staffing to bed counts, but issues have been far from uniform across the U.S. To find out which states were most prepared going into the pandemic, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on the States with the Best Health Infrastructure for Coronavirus, as well as accompanying videos.

To identify which states have the best health infrastructure, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 14 key metrics. Our data set ranges from the state’s Public Health Emergency Preparedness funding per capita to the share of the population that is uninsured and the number of hospital beds per capita. Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.

Health Infrastructure in New Jersey (1=Best, 25=Avg.):

  • 39th – Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Funding Per Capita
  • 49th – Public Hospital System Quality
  • 38th – Public Healthcare Spending per Capita
  • 27th – Number of Hospital Beds per Capita
