Healthcare Quality Navigator Index

Quality in healthcare means providing the care the Consumer needs, when the Consumer needs it, in an affordable, safe, effective manner. Quality healthcare also means engaging and involving the Consumer, so the Consumer takes ownership in preventive care and in the treatment of diagnosed conditions.

Healthcare Prices have taken front stage in our national healthcare discussions.  Quality is rarely mentioned.

Most Healthcare consumers have no idea how to research the quality of their healthcare providers. The Healthcare Quality Navigator will provide the consumer with information and help the consumer navigate the quality maze.

Below, we have developed a list of major hospitals, by state,  with their appropriate ratings.
