Determining America’s Best Hospital

For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million Medicare inpatient records over a three-year period from 2016-2018 for nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide to assess hospital performance.

Based on Healthgrades findings, patients treated at an America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement have, on average, a 62.5% lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award.*

“Consumers have many choices when it comes to choosing a hospital where to receive care and the choice can be a matter of life and death,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Healthgrades. “America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement recognizes those hospitals that have proven their dedication to quality care and exceptional outcomes over time and we applaud their efforts and achievement.”
