Best healthcare accelerator?

A friend of mine is in need of a healthcare accelerator. I have been doing some research for her [I do not have much experience in the healthcare industry], so I am curious if others have had any experience with the following accelerators & which would you recommend using & why: [Medstatr, Startup Health, Blueprint Health, Healthbox, Prebacked, & Rock Health]

I would check with brian roberts from venrock - he's #1 investor in healthcare sector. venrock's team would probably have a good idea.

Check out Iron Yard in South Carolina. Deep connections to Mayo Clinic and Abbott Labs.

It depends on what kind of healthcare and if you want to be based in a certain region. Out here in the Bay Area: IndieBio, Breakout Labs (and the Rock Health community for digital health) and also YC takes healthcare companies. If they have a Stanford affiliation, StartXMed.

I have just graduating from Founder Institute in London which is a generic tech accelerator and have looked at a number of health specific accelerators Rock Health looks good. They have a number of high profile start ups.
