Healthgrades also published “Healthgrades 2021 America’s Best Hospitals™ Special Report: Creating a Culture of Excellence,” which explores how these hospitals have consistently delivered better than expected outcomes and embraced the challenges of quality improvement.
For the 2021 study period (Medicare Fiscal Years 2017-2019), Healthgrades 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 Healthgrades America’s Best Hospitals™ have, on average, a 27.4 percent lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive this award.
