These reports of quality measures show how often or how quickly hospitals give the recommended treatments known to get the best results for people with certain common conditions. This information can help you compare which hospitals give recommended treatments most often as part of their overall care.
Our Recommended Care reports show how often or how quickly hospitals in Minnesota (and some surrounding areas) give patients the recommended treatments for heart attacks, heart failure, and pneumonia. You can also see how often patients get recommended care before and after surgery, including patients with chronic health conditions.
This information is based on the CMS Hospital Compare ratings. The Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA) collects the data for our region, and then MN Community Measurement shares that data on the MN HealthScores website for the public to use. Our reports are meant to help you find high-quality care. If you have questions about your care at a hospital, we encourage you to talk with your health care provider to learn more.
