High-Quality Recognition

Performance Reporting Resources

St. Mark's Hospital is committed to delivering high-quality services to all of our patients. As part of that commitment, we support transparency of hospital performance, quality outcomes and healthcare costs.

How does HealthGrades rate hospitals?

It independently and objectively rates the quality of care for nearly every hospital in the country, for each of 28 procedures and diagnoses - from bypass surgery to knee replacement to treatment for a heart attack. The analysis is "risk adjusted," meaning that hospitals taking sicker patients can be compared on equal footing with other hospitals.
