About the HealthGrades Ratings

HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent healthcare ratings organization, annually assesses patient mortality and complication rates in its sweeping study of hospital quality in America.  Government data from the nation’s nearly 5,000 hospitals from 2007, 2008 and 2009 is carefully analyzed for the study.  HealthGrades’ hospital ratings and awards reflect the track record of patient outcomes at hospitals in the form of mortality and complication rates. HealthGrades rates hospitals independently based on data that hospitals submit to the federal government. No hospital can opt in or out of being rated, and no hospital pays to be rated.
