America, right? Unless you're expecting continuing struggles with chronic conditions, I'm not sure it's much of an issue.
It seems that routine care is available just about anywhere, even if it involves an hour's drive to the dialysis center. If you need cataract surgery or cancer therapy, I doubt you're going to try it at the local community hospital no matter how good their reputation is. You're probably going to go to a facility in a major city, perhaps even Johns Hopkins or Mayo.
Am I missing the point of the question?
