More U.S. hospitals are giving patients the recommended treatments for common conditions, according to an annual report released Thursday by an independent accrediting group.

The number of hospitals deemed top performers totaled 1,224 last year, with at least one in every state, according to the Joint Commission’s report. That compares to 1,099 in 2012 and almost double the 620 hospitals in 2011.
