Hawaii Best in Nation

Hawaii had the steepest drop in hospital readmissions in the nation between 2010 and 2015, according to data released this week by the federal government.

This means Hawaii - already among the states with the lowest readmission rates in the nation - made the most progress in ensuring patients got the care they needed during their stay and after leaving the hospital. It also shows that while hospitals around the country lowered the overall readmission rate by 8%, Hawaii hospitals outperformed the national average by achieving a larger 13.4% drop.
