How to use the Hospital Rankings tool: Hospitals around your zip code are shown on the map. The color of a hospital's marker shows how it performed on benchmarks set out by the US Department of Health and Human Services in four categories: Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Pneumonia, and Surgical Care Improvement/Surgical Infection Prevention.

Hospital ratings are based on an algorithm that combines information from a variety of hospital quality measures collected by the US federal government. These hospital rankings use information gathered about frequent types of primary care admissions, rather than tertiary or specialty care admissions. Because the hospital ratings represent data collected on common diagnoses for hospital admissions, they may not reflect the actual quality of a hospital for many reasons. For example, some hospitals may treat a high proportion of nursing home patients, and some of the data points might therefore not be relevant (for example, if a large fraction of patients enter the hospital on a ventilator they are unlikely to be given "stop smoking" counselling at discharge). Other reasons for a mismatch might include patient demographics, tertiary care expertise and type of hospital.
