Healthgrades Rankings

Healthgrades, the nation’s leading consumer resource for information about physicians and hospitals, releases rankings annually which demonstrate the impact that clinical performance may have on health outcomes.

The Healthgrades study evaluates the clinical outcomes of the nation’s top hospitals for risk-adjusted mortality and in-hospital complication rates for 36 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions and identifies the 100 best hospitals within each procedure.

Specialty care rankings are updated every October; the Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence award is updated every January. Here are EvergreenHealth's most current Healthgrades ratings:
