Healthgrades names ‘Best Hospitals’ for 2017

April 4, 2017


Healthgrades released its annual list of America’s Best Hospitals, which are included in an article from Advisory Board. Healthgrades recognizes hospitals based on a variety of criteria and further breaks the list into the 50 Best Hospitals and the 100 Best Hospitals.

In order to be eligible, hospitals were asked to submit data on mortality and complication rates for at least 21 of 32 conditions and procedures included in Healthgrades’ methodology. Healthgrades also used information from CMS’ Medicare Provider Analysis and Review database to assess the mortality and complication rates, which led them to identify the top 5% of hospitals that earned the Distinguished Award for Clinical Excellence. To earn on a spot as a top 50 hospital, organizations had to receive a Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence for at least six consecutive years.

Let’s just say, there is a lot of thought put into compiling this list, which makes it even more significant to be one of the top 50. I’d like to personally congratulate our customers who make up over half of the top 50 list:
