The West Suffolk Hospital has been ranked as one of the best in the UK by the Health watchdog the CQC.
The Care Quality Commission gave the trust which runs the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds an outstanding rating.
It's the only trust in the east and one of seven general hospitals in England to be given the top accolade and the only one in the eastern region.
Inspectors said the hospital had compassionate staff and praised its end of life care and leadership.
The Care Quality Commission visited the Trust in November last year, inspecting its end-of-life and outpatient services and reviewing how well-led the organisation was.
Inspectors gave the trust the outstanding rating for being caring, effective and well-led and good for being safe and responsive.
The Trust was last inspected in March 2016 and was then rated as 'good' overall. The latest inspection noted that there had been a focus on improving care 'across the organisation'
