What does this mean for patients? There is a positive correlation between Healthgrades accolades and patient outcomes. According to data collected over the last two years, hospitals ranked in the top 100 for orthopedic surgery saw significantly lower risk of complications for patients — an average of 41.6% lower — compared to hospitals not placed in the top ranking. For cardiac patients, being treated at a hospital among the 50 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Surgery meant a 56% lower risk of death.
