NEW YORK (WWTI) – New York has been ranked the second worst state for doctors.

A new report from WalletHub studied each state to determine which ones are best for doctors. The person-finance website highlighted how doctors are one of the most essential professions, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and their contributions to society as individuals continue to fight the virus. .

Despite doctors’ crucial place in communities, some states have fallen to the bottom of the list when determining the best places for health officials to practice. One of those misclassified states included New York.

To complete the study, WalletHub compared all 50 states and the District of Columbia across 19 key metrics. The data set ranged from the average annual salary of doctors in state hospitals to the quality of the public hospital system.

New York was ranked 47th for its average annual physician salary, which was also determined based on the state’s cost of living. New York also fell short of its annual professional liability insurance rate for which it was ranked 50th.

Additionally, New York was ranked 50th for the number of hospitals in the state, 48th for doctors projected to be in the state by 2028, and 51st for the amount of malpractice compensation payments per capita.

However, New York was higher on the list for the average monthly starting salary for doctors which was ranked 16th. It also scored higher than about half of other states in projected percentage of population 65 or older by 2030 for which it was ranked 28th.

Overall, New York’s overall ranking was rated 43.17 and was 50th out of 51, ranking only above Rhode Island. It was rated 42 for opportunity and competition and 44 for medical environment.

Topping the list were South Dakota with a total score of 69.37, Minnesota with a score of 67.82 and Wisconsin with a score of 67.42. The full list of rankings can be found below.
