Hospital Compare

Hospital Compare is a consumer-oriented website that provides information on how well hospitals provide care to their patients. This information can help consumers make informed decisions about health care. Hospital Compare allows consumers to select multiple hospitals and directly compare performance measure information related to heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgery and other conditions.

The HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) Survey is a standardized survey instrument and data collection methodology to measure patients’ perspectives of their hospital care. The HCAHPS measures were created to publicly report patients’ perspectives on their hospital care. HCAHPS results posted on Hospital Compare provide ratings, including comparisons to state and national averages, that help consumers understand how hospitals perform.
