Peer Group Bar Charts
Charts displaying, for each of the areas identified as potentially at risk for improper Medicare payments, the target area percents that are at the 80th, 50th and 20th percentiles for short-term acute care hospitals in four categories: location, ownership type, teaching status and surgical focus. The statistics were calculated for Medicare discharges occurring in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 (October 1 – December 31, 2019). For details on how these charts were developed please see the ST Peer Group Methodology document (PDF, updated 3-25-2019). For a listing of all hospitals and their peer group classification please see the ST hospitals by peer group file (PDF, updated 06-21-2021). Note: use Control+F or the “Find” button to search the file for a CMS Certification Number (provider number) or provider name.
