Healthgrades Quality Rankings
Healthgrades quality ratings demonstrate how well patients fared during their hospital stay in terms of mortality, complications, and other quality measures.
Healthgrades objectively evaluates hospital quality by measuring the actual and predicted number of patients who experienced complications during their hospital stay for a specific procedure or treatment. Hospitals are awarded 5 stars (better than expected), 3 stars (as expected), or 1 star (worse than expected) based on their performance in specific conditions and procedures. Patients risk of complications and death resulting from treatment can be significantly lower at hospitals with 5-star ratings.
