100 SafeCare Hospitals® represent the nation’s top performing hospitals in evidence-based metrics of Medical and Surgical Infections, 30-Day Mortality rates, Complications rates for Medical and Surgical Care, Patient Satisfaction, 30-Day Medical and Surgical Readmissions, and overall value. 100 SafeCare Hospitals have achieved an exemplary level of performance in the comprehensive, evidence-based metrics of the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) value-based program (HVBP), readmissions reduction program (HRRP), and acquired complications reduction program (HACRP).
