Why are ratings important?

Many hospitals and health systems claim to be among the best. That’s why, when choosing a hospital or health care provider, we urge folks to rely on multiple sources of information – personal and physician recommendations, state and federal licensing agencies and reliable health care rating companies like HealthGrades® – to help you make informed decisions about where to seek care.

What is HealthGrades and what do the rankings mean?

HealthGrades is the leading health care ratings company in the nation, and the only one that evaluates hospitals’ clinical performance solely on objective patient outcomes: risk-adjusted mortality and in-hospital complications.

Each year, HealthGrades evaluates and recognizes hospitals’ performance in more than a dozen specialty areas.
