Posted November 04, 2018 16:09:37 The state of Wisconsin, one of the wealthiest in the country, is the home of the top three hospitals in the nation according to the latest rankings released by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The list, which ranks hospitals by the number of visits to the ER, as well as the percentage of people with chronic conditions that they treat, was compiled by the CMS and compiled from information from nearly 50 years of data from the most recent year.
The hospital rankings include data on visits by Medicare patients, Medicaid patients and adults under age 65.
In addition, they also include data from hospital discharge data and the number and type of injuries sustained by patients.
The rankings are the first of their kind since Medicare started tracking ER visits in 1983.
