Quality Reporting at Ballad Health
Quality is important to Ballad Health, and we know it is important to you as you make choices about your healthcare. We want to be sure you can freely and easily access the information you need to make important decisions about your healthcare.
To help you access this information, we have provided this link to Hospital Compare, where you can compare our hospitals’ quality scores against the average scores of all hospitals across the nation, as well as those within Tennessee and Virginia:
How Hospital Compare works
The scores come from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) the U.S. government agency that runs the Medicare program. CMS tallies and reports scores for areas where there are clear, evidence-based guidelines for treating certain medical conditions.
