Healthgrades Quality Ratings

Healthgrades quality ratings tell you how well patients fared during their hospital stay in terms of mortality, complications, and other quality measures.

Healthgrades objectively measures hospital quality based on the number of patients who experienced complications or died as a result of their procedure or treatment.

Healthgrades designates hospitals with 5-stars (better than expected), 3-stars





(as expected), or 1-star (worse than expected) based on their performance in specific conditions and procedures.

Your risk of complications and death from your treatment can be significantly lower at hospitals with a 5-star rating for the specific treatment.

If you need medical care in one of the procedures or conditions we rate, consider a hospital with 5-stars for the specific care that you need.

If you need medical care in an area not listed, look at the ratings most relevant to your need. For example, if you have a heart problem, consider how the hospital rates in cardiac care overall.

Five minutes with this information could save your life. Taking the time to carefully review a hospital’s performance is critical to your health—statistics show that it can mean the difference between life and death.

Before choosing a hospital, think carefully about the services you might need and do your research.

Focus on the most important outcomes. In Fall 2013, Healthgrades removed the 180-day mortality rating. Healthgrades is placing more emphasis on patient outcomes that are most important to consumers (in-hospital mortality), and those that are consistent with national quality improvement efforts (mortality within 30 days of hospital admission).
