The Best Hospitals in America

The Best Hospitals in America

Hospitals play a crucial role in keeping us healthy... even if it's not exactly fun when you have to make an unplanned visit to one. A stay at the hospital is made great by several factors, all of which can impact your wallet: quality, safe care, a reputation for excellent patient experiences and an ethical approach to treatment.

Money teamed up with The Leapfrog Group, a health care nonprofit, to bring you our first-ever Best Hospitals ranking to help you make educated decisions about which institutions are best for your money.

Read on to see our picks for the Best Hospitals in America and learn more about the methodology we used to make these selections.

Never Events: A never event is an occurrence in the medical field that should “never happen.” This measure indicates the hospital fully complies with the elements of Leapfrog's Never Events policy, which asks hospitals to commit to nine basic acts if a Never Event occurs: apologize to the patient and family, waive all costs related to the event and follow-up care, report the event to an external agency, conduct a root-cause analysis of how and why the event occurred, make a copy of this policy available to patients, interview patients/families to inform root cause analysis, inform patient/families of actions taken by hospital to prevent similar Never Events in the future, have a protocol to provide support for caregivers involved in Never Events, and perform an annual review to ensure compliance with Leapfrog’s Never Events Policy for each Never Event that occurred.
