Compare hospitals on heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia

Welcome to a new era of openness in medical care.

In this interactive USA TODAY graphic, you’ll find medicine’s best-kept secret revealed: death rates for heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia for every hospital in the nation.

USA TODAY created this graphic using data compiled by the federal government’s Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The agency also has supplied the information to the more than 4,000 hospitals included and posted them on a government website called Hospital Compare.
