Hospital Compare has information about the quality of care at over 4,000 Medicare-certified hospitals across the country. You can get a “snapshot” of the quality of hospitals in your area and across the nation by looking at the following aspects of healthcare:

  • Timely and effective care: How often and quickly each hospital gives recommended treatments for certain conditions like heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, children’s asthma, and for surgical patients. 
  • Readmissions, complications and deaths:
    • How each hospital’s rates of readmission and death rates compare with the national rate.
    • How likely patients will suffer from complications while in the hospital.
    • How often patients in the hospital get certain serious conditions that could have been prevented if the hospital followed procedures based on best practices and scientific evidence.
  • Use of medical imaging: How a hospital uses outpatient medical imaging tests (like CT scans and MRIs). 
  • Survey of patients’ experiences: How recently discharged patients responded to a national survey about their hospital experience. For example, how well did a hospital’s doctors and nurses communicate with patients and manage their pain?
  • Number of Medicare patients: How many people with Medicare have had certain procedures or have been treated for certain conditions at each hospital.
  • Medicare payment: Information about how much Medicare pays hospitals.

In an emergency, you should go to the nearest hospital. When you can plan ahead, discuss the information you find here with your health care provider to decide which hospital will best meet your health care needs.

Hospital Compare was created through the efforts of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), in collaboration with organizations representing consumers, hospitals, doctors, employers, accrediting organizations, and other Federal agencies.
