Top Hospitals

Hospitals are dangerous places. A stay at even the best hospitals pose significant risks of death, infections, and other mishaps. Our ratings of more than 4,800 U.S. acute-care hospitals, and our advice on how to get the best possible care, will help you decide where to go.

Surgeon Ratings

Choosing the best surgeon can reduce your chances of death, complications, or other bad outcomes. Based on analyses of more than five million surgeries done in hospital by more than 50,000 surgeons, we show you which surgeons' patients had the lowest (or highest) rates of deaths, prolonged lengths of stay (indicating likely complications), or need to be readmitted to hospital, after our risk-adjustments for patient characteristics.
