The public can use this tool to search by zip code or city and state:
* The general search results list all hospitals within 25 miles of the zip code or city, with the ability to compare 3 hospitals at a time.
* If seeking information about a specific medical condition or procedure, the person can choose from a list of common conditions and procedures, and get specific data related to those procedures.
The overall rating summarizes up to 57 quality measures across seven areas of quality into a single star rating for each hospital. Consumers can also compare hospitals on the patient survey summary star rating.
