The 250 'Best Hospitals' in 2024, according to Healthgrades

Healthgrades on Tuesday released its annual "America's Best Hospitals Awards," which recognizes the 250 top hospitals in the country. 

About the list

The 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 determine the winners, Healthgrades used Medicare data from 2020-2022 to evaluate roughly 4,500 hospitals on how well they performed in 31 of the most common procedures and conditions, including heart attack, pneumonia, and sepsis.

"Hospital quality is a crucial, yet often overlooked, factor to consider when choosing a doctor," said Brad Bowman, CMO and head of data science at Healthgrades. "Healthgrades is dedicated to taking the guesswork out of the equation by providing consumers with a reliable, data-driven platform to identify reputable hospitals in their area. We want to give patients the confidence they're choosing the highest quality healthcare."
