Smarter choices start here.
Where can consumers turn for unbiased information about the quality of care provided by the thousands of doctors, hospitals, and long-term care providers in California?
Free and easy-to-use, CalQualityCare.org features information on California hospitals, nursing homes, and other long-term care facilities, along with tips and checklists about how to choose a health care provider, questions to ask, how to pay for care, and what to do if something goes wrong.
Better information enables smarter choices when making medical decisions. Publicly available information about health care quality — and consumers eager to consider quality in their medical decisions — will improve the health care system.

Public information about health care quality is hard to come by, sometimes not objective, and often difficult to understand.
Early on the California Health Care Foundation saw an overwhelming need to make such information available and recognized that providing the information online is the most effective path.
The California Health Care Foundation will continue updating and adding health care quality data and ratings to CalQualityCare.org as new information becomes available.
The site does not give performance ratings for assisted living, congregate living health facilities, continuing care retirement communities, adult day health care, or adult day care because these providers are subject to different standards that do not allow for collecting similar performance data. As data on these facilities become available, ratings will be assigned to those providers.
You can compare up to three providers of the same type at a time. Please remove one from your Saved Providers if you'd like to compare this provider instead.
