Best hospital for joint replacements in all 50 states: CareChex

CareChex, an information service of Quantros, released the 2018 Hospital Quality Rankings, ranking the top hospitals by state for several specialty procedures including joint replacements.

 

The ranking takes Quantros' National Quality Rating Database for general, acute, non-federal U.S. hospitals, incorporating 10 quarters of Medicare fee-for-service claims data from January 2014 to June 2016. The organization also uses CMS Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems data, which provides patient satisfaction measures on physician and nurse communication, medication examination, pain control, care transition and several other areas.
