About the Common Care Rankings

U.S. News evaluated over 4,500 hospitals nationwide on common inpatient procedures and conditions that account for millions of hospitalizations each year. Objective outcome measures such as deaths, infections, readmissions, and operations that need to be repeated as well as patient satisfaction data largely determined the ratings. The Best Hospitals for Common Care ratings rely on Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data for patients 65 and older, as well as survey data from the American Hospital Association and clinical registry data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.

The complete rankings and methodology are available on the US News and World Report website.
