Hospital Compare

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid created a consumer-oriented website called Hospital Compare, which allows you to compare hospitals across the nation using 26 quality measures. These 26 measures only concern heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and the prevention of surgical infections. Over 4,000 hospitals, including Houston Methodist Hospital, have voluntarily reported data on quality of care. Above you can see how Houston Methodist Hospital compares to the state and national average. Hospital Compare can be accessed at www.HospitalCompare.hhs.gov or at www.medicare.gov.
