The scorecard is the first of its kind from the Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation focused on health care.
The Commonwealth Fund rated states based on 32 indicators, including access, quality, cost, insurance, preventive care, potentially avoidable hospital visits, and premature death (death before age 75).
The top five states in order are Hawaii, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine.
The bottom five states are Nevada, Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, and Oklahoma.
A full list of state rankings follows later in this article.
