Study finds patients treated at hospitals ranked highest on Quality 71% less likely to die

KaiserNetwork.org reports that Medicare beneficiaries who receive care in the highest-ranked U.S. hospitals are 71% less likely to die than those who receive care in the lowest-ranked facilities. This is the findings of the 10th annual Hospital Quality in America Study released on Monday by HealthGrades. For the study, researchers examined the medical records of 41 million Medicare beneficiaries who received care in 5,000 hospitals between 2004 and 2006.
