New Study Finds Maryland Hospitals Performing Below National Average

By Alpert Schreyer on October 29, 2012

A new study by has found that Maryland ranks among the bottom half of all states when it comes to hospital care. The study examined how hospitals treated patients for four key conditions from 2005 through 2011, with Maryland showing some of the least improvement in their treatment rates and Washington, D.C. ranking among the worst.

Hospital Care Study
The Healthgrades study examined coronary artery bypass graft, heart attack, pneumonia, and sepsis, which combined to account for 54% of all U.S. hospital-related fatalities. While not all hospitals in each state ranked as well or as poorly as their state’s average, the total rates from all hospitals were combined to represent the state’s medical care.

After assessing mortality rates in each state, it was found that Maryland had the worst rate of improvement out of any state in the nation. Maryland’s mortality rate of 6.7% improved to 6.3%, the least amount of improvement found in any state. The best states (Arizona, Montana, Colorado, Wisconsin, and Minnesota) had mortality rates between 4.16% and 4.4%, while the worst states (Alabama, Washington, D.C., Mississippi, Nevada, Vermont) ranged from 7.0% to 6.3%. This places Maryland as a close runner-up to the rankings of worst hospital mortality rates in the nation.
