How poor is the quality of US Health Care

I have made more than a few of these arguments myself previously, but David Friedman does an excellent job discussing the problems with the WHO ranking of health care systems in 192 nations.

That WHO ranking is the most ridiculous ranking ever. Tens if not hundreds of thousands of people fly to the U.S. annually to get medical services from cancer to fertility treatment. Myself, I flew to the U.S. when I was 5 years old to have a heart surgery. And heads of state from around the globe fly to the U.S. to get the best health care available on the planet. Meanwhile, have you ever heard of people flying to France, Italy, San Marino or Andorra, which according to the WHO rank higher than the U.S., to get medical treatment of any kind? This ranking is complete garbage.
