States with Best Healthcare in US

US News published a ranking of states on quality of healthcare.  The top 10 don’t necessarily mirror population migration patterns, but who wouldn’t want to live where the best healthcare is found?

Conversely, why are residents of states with inferior care apparently so complacent about it?  I grew up in Kentucky, which is a hotbed of cancer from smoking, and offers sub par healthcare.  Why?

1. Hawaii

2. Massachusetts

3. Minnesota

4. New Hampshire

5. Iowa

6. Vermont

7. Rhode Island

8. New Jersey

9. Washington

10. California

The 10 worst states are the usual suspects:

50. Arkansas

49. Mississippi

48. Oklahoma

47. Alabama

46. West Virginia

45. Louisiana

44. Kentucky

43. Wyoming

42. Tennessee

41. Indiana
