Resources from the New York State Department of Health 

The New York State Department of Health offers tools to help you learn how hospitals and doctors in your area care for their patients. 

New York State Hospital Compare
The New York State Hospital Compare website was developed through the efforts of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) along with the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA). It provides information on how well the hospitals in your area care for all their patients with certain medical conditions. 

New York State Physician Profile
The New York State Physician Profile site provides detailed information for all licensed doctors of medicine and doctors of osteopathy who are registered to practice medicine in NYS. This resource includes information about the translation services available at the doctor's offices. This information can help you choose a doctor or find out more about a doctor you currently visit.
