What are the ratings for and how were they derived? The Best Hospitals procedures and conditions ratings show consumers how well their local hospitals stand up to close scrutiny. Hospitals are rated high performing, average or below average in a procedure or condition. Data was obtained from a federal data set, including Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, as well as measures from the 2014 American Hospital Association’s annual survey, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
