The Right Hospital

Your risk of complications and death can be many times higher at one hospital than at another just down the road.

We should know. We're the nation's leader in measuring and reporting hospital care quality. Our ratings are based on the actual outcomes and patient experiences at those hospitals over the last three years.

Here is what you should know about choosing the right hospital.

1
Doctors and Hospitals are Linked: Doctors have admitting privileges at only certain hospitals — so when you choose a doctor, you are choosing a hospital.

2
Care Quality Varies. A Lot: You can have an 81% greater chance of dying at a 1-star hospital compared to a 5-star hospital.

3
You Can Minimize Risk: If you need hospital care, use our industry-leading ratings to make sure your doctor can treat you at a hospital rated at least three stars in your area of care. The difference to your health can be dramatic.
