Hospital stays are expensive - adding up to more than $3.3 trillion a year. There is no standard system that determines what a hospital charges for a particular service or procedure. So, we created our site to help patients see how their hospital compare with others.
Each year, an estimated 440,000 patients die from medical errors. Millions more are affected from shabby care, bad treatments, and poor services from healthcare providers.
We listened to the numerous emails and letters of complaints, suggestions, and feedback from patients and created an easy tool for hospital consumers to find and compare hospitals. Our members are down-to-earth folks seeking to find dependable hospitals that deliver high-quality care.
100SafeCareHospitals.com is a consumer-oriented service that can help consumers make informed decisions about their health care. The Star Ratings include quality measures for the routine care an individual receives when being treated for heart attacks and pneumonia to quality measures that focus on hospital-acquired infections and hospital-acquired complications.
Since 2013, we published ratings, rankings, and reviews on more than 4,500 different US hospitals in the areas of hospital deaths, hospital complications, hospital infections, hospital readmissions, and hospital charges. Our goal since the beginning was to empower patients, caregivers, and providers with information to improve healthcare and reduce unnecessary medical errors.
