Hospital Choices Matter
All hospitals do not perform equally. In fact, your choice of hospital could mean the difference between life and death, or quickly getting back into action. Each year, Healthgrades evaluates hospitals on their clinical outcomes and rates them as 5 stars (better than expected), 3 stars (as expected) or 1 star (worse than expected). Patients choosing a 5-star rated hospital for their procedure have a lower risk of dying and a lower risk of complications than if they chose a 1-star rated hospital.
