Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on what matters most –patient outcomes –to determine the top-performing hospitals for specialty care in each of the 32 states assessed. Healthgrades’ 2024 analysis revealed that patients who seek care at a hospital with rankings in their condition or procedure have a better chance of a good outcome than if they were treated at a facility that is not among the top 5 in Florida. This widening performance gap highlights the importance of selecting a top-rated program. In fact, from 2020 to 2022, patients treated at hospitals that received a state ranking for joint replacement surgery had a lower risk of experiencing a complication while in the hospital than if they were treated at hospitals that were not state-ranked for joint replacement. *
“Healthgrades is proud to recognize HCA Florida Capital Hospital as among the top 5 in Florida for joint replacement surgery,” said Brad Bowman, M.D., chief medical officer and head of data science at Healthgrades. “Hospitals with a No. 5 ranking in their state deliver consistently superior outcomes for the patients in their community.
