This year’s rankings compared more than 4,500 national medical centers across 25 specialties, conditions and procedures, with 158 hospitals receiving national rankings in at least one specialty and more than 1,100 hospitals considered as high performing in at least one common condition or procedure. The publication also released regional rankings that recognized hospitals by state and metro area.
“For nearly 3 decades, U.S. News has strived to make hospital quality more transparent to health care consumers nationwide,” Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News, said in the press release. “By providing the most comprehensive data available on nearly every hospital across the United States, we give patients, families and physicians information to support their search for the best care across a range of procedures, conditions and specialties.”
New to this year’s ranking methodologies include integration of ICD-10 data, removal of inpatient transfers when calculating the risk-adjusted mortality rate and the conversion of risk-adjusted mortality rates to survival scores.
