National Hospital Rankings provides national rankings for hospitals calculated using publicly reported data downloaded from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website. The Hospital Compare data set contains hospital-specific performance data on more than 100 measures for over 4,500 hospitals nationwide. These quality measures include clinical process of care, patient outcomes and patient experience of care measures. The national rankings are based on hospitals’ performance in four areas: Patient experience of care, Health care associated infections, Mortality and Hospital readmissions. Hospitals are ranked based on their performance in each of these areas and the individual ranks are combined into an overall composite performance ranking.
