Just 102 institutions out of 4,599 hospitals, or 2.2%, earned five stars. Of the rest of the hospitals, 20.3% garnered four stars, 38.5% received three, 15.7% earned two stars and 2.9% received a single star. A significant proportion 20.4% of hospitals were deemed ineligible for ratings, because they lacked data to report measure results.

The ratings are a composite metric of one to five stars, with five being the best. They intend to convey the overall quality of nearly 4,000 hospitals in the U.S and are posted to the CMS' Hospital Compare site. In grading hospitals on their overall quality, the CMS used 64 measures, such hospital-acquired infection rates or emergency room wait times, that had already been posted to the Hospital Compare site. It grouped those measures into broader categories, then weighted them. Hospitals had to meet minimum reporting requirements in order to be eligible to receive a star rating.
