    Evaluating a hospital is difficult. Rather than opinion, the above overall rating and the Safety Ratings below are based on analysis. This sophisticated 5 star statistical rating model was created for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) by statistical experts at Yale University.

    We have converted their original 5 star rating to a letter grade based on ranking the hospital into it's star rating percentile. A score of 88 would mean that this hospital scored above 88% of other measured hospitals - in the top 12%. This translates to a letter grade as follows: below 60 is an F, 60-69 a D, 70-79 a C, 80-89 is a B, and 90-100 is an A.

    The purpose of the model is to represent hospital quality based on facts. But facts can be complicated, no hospital is quite the same. Consider that some hospitals treat much sicker patients than others. This overall ratings takes into account pre-existing health conditions, population served, and overall outcomes to give you the most comprehensive, reliable hospital comparison rating.

    Known limitations of this model are that much of the data is collected solely for Medicare patients. Also, keep in mind that it accounts for a breadth of services across the entire hospital, departments that are in fact excellent may be overshadowed by others that are not.

    We hope that the overall hospital rating will serve as a starting point for understanding your local hospital offerings. We encourage you to also look further into the [link]technical details of this rating[/link] and study the specifics provided below to form your own personalized, more detailed perspective on this hospital's quality of care.
