What are the ratings based on?
HealthGrades ratings are based on the organization’s evaluation of patient outcomes for the nation’s 5,000 hospitals. Their research provides the largest and only comprehensive analysis based solely on patient mortality and complication rates.
The new 2013 HealthGrades hospital ratings are free to the public at www.healthgrades.com.
What do the ratings mean?
HealthGrades’ hospital ratings and awards reflect the track record of patient outcomes at hospitals in the form of mortality and complication rates. HealthGrades rates hospitals independently based on data that hospitals submit to the federal government. No hospital can opt in or out of being rated, and no hospital pays to be rated.
For 28 procedures and treatments, HealthGrades issues star ratings that reflect the mortality and complication rates for each category of care. Hospitals receiving a 5-star rating have mortality or complication rates that are below the national average, to a statistically significant degree.
