Why does USA's healthcare system rank so low?


Considering we are one of the richest countries in the world, why is it that we have a healthcare system that ranks so poorly? The last time the World Health Organization ranked us we came in 37th, and in 2014 when Commonwealth Fund surveyed just 11 countries, we came in last out of those 11. So why and what are the contributing factors to this?
