Healthgrades names 2013′s top hospitals

February 20, 2013 in Medical Technology

A new report released Feb. 19  recognizes the nation’s best hospitals for 2013 in addition to top cities in the United States for hospital care based on in-hospital mortality rates. Dayton, Ohio; Phoenix; and Milwaukee came out on top, all seeing mortality rates less than 5 percent.  

Also among the top cities for hospital care, when taking into account the risk-adjusted in-hospital mortality rates, were Cincinnati, Deltona/Daytona Beach, Fla., Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Detroit and Rochester, Minn.

 

The report, “America’s Best Hospitals 2013: Navigating Variability in Hospital Quality,” conducted by Healthgrades, showed some states came up empty handed with the best hospital awards, including Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Vermont and West Virginia. Moreover, many states that have been consistently recognized for having the top hospitals in the nation – such as Massachusetts, home of Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s, and Washington, home of the University of Washington Medical Center – also did not make the cut. 

 

By contrast, Florida (13 hospitals recognized); Ohio; Michigan; and California (all with nine hospitals recognized) walked away with the most awards. 

 

“The America’s Best Hospitals distinction provides a measure of confidence for consumers,” said Evan Marks, executive vice president, Informatics and Strategy, Healthgrades, in a statement. “Each hospital’s exceptional performance reflects a dedication and approach to quality which has been evidenced across the organization and has been demonstrated consistently in terms of superior clinical outcomes.”

 

According to report officials, if all hospitals analyzed in the report performed at the level of the top hospitals, up to 165,000 lives could have been saved.

“The good news for consumers, whether or not they reside in one of the top cities, is they can still find hospitals that demonstrate superior quality so long as they do their homework before seeking care,” said Archelle Georgiou, MD, a strategic advisor to Healthgrades. “This report unequivocally shows that there is no substitute for using quantitative data to select a care provider. Instead of relying on name recognition, location or size, consumers should carefully review a hospital’s performance across different procedures and conditions. The result may, in some cases, mean the difference between life and death.”
