Hoag Orthopedic only O.C. hospital to receive top Medicare ranking
Orange County Register

Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine was the only Orange County hospital to receive the maximum five stars, as the federal government this week unveiled a new quarterly ratings system to make it easier for patients to select hospitals.

Medicare’s star ratings identify hospitals based how well they fared on random surveys measuring patients’ experiences, including whether the hospital was clean and quiet and how well doctors and nurses communicated.
