Healthgrades has announced the 2020 America’s Best Hospitals™ . The recipients of the America’s 50, 100 and 250 Best Hospitals Awards™ — which represent the top 1, 2 and 5 percent of hospitals in the nation, respectively — demonstrate superior performance for the most common procedures and conditions year-after-year.
Healthgrades America’s Best Hospitals Awards analyzed the performance of nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide across 32 conditions and procedures, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, respiratory failure, sepsis and stroke. Overall, patients treated in hospitals named as America’s Best Hospitals™ have, on average, a 26.6 percent lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive this award. If all hospitals, as a group, performed similarly to America’s Best Hospitals, 161,930 lives could potentially have been saved (Statistics based on Healthgrades analysis of MedPAR data for years 2016 through 2018 and represent 3-year estimates for Medicare inpatients only).
