About the list

The 2022 America's Best Hospitals list encompasses three awards:

  • America's 250 Best Hospitals, which represent the top 5% of hospitals in the United States
  • America's 100 Best Hospitals, which represent the top 2% of hospitals in the United States
  • America's 50 Best Hospitals, which represent the top 1% of hospitals in the United States.

To identify award winners, Healthgrades reviewed the performance of nearly 4,500 U.S. hospitals using Medicare inpatient data from CMS' Medicare Provider Analysis and Review from 2018 to 2020. The analysis looked at patient outcome data for 31 conditions and procedures, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, respiratory failure, sepsis, and stroke.

According to Healthgrades, the hospitals that received these quality awards have consistently produced better clinical outcomes than expected for their patients. Overall, Healthgrades determined that if all hospitals as a group performed as well as the recipients of the Healthgrades America's 250 Best Hospitals Award on average, 160,256 lives could potentially have been saved.
