You may want to keep this list in mind the next time you need to go to a hospital in the New York City area.

The nonprofit organization combines a host of national performance measures to determine a single letter grade for each hospital. The grades are largely based on infections, problems with surgery, practices to prevent errors, safety problems and the medical staff. Here's a look at all of the hospitals in New York City and the surrounding New York area that received a D or F.
