Hospital Compare Will Evaluate Your Hospital

Nobody likes to go to hospitals and doctors but if you have to, it is good to know that there is a website called Hospital Compare, which will evaluate and compare your hospital.

Hospital Compare provides you with information on how hospitals measure up on care for their patients with certain medical conditions (heart attack, chronic lung disease, pneumonia, diabetes in adults etc) and surgical procedures like angioplasty, heart bypass surgery, gallbladder removal, back and neck operations and female reproductive operations etc)

You can compare hospitals either by "specific conditions or procedures" or by "general search"

Hospital Compare is managed by the Department of Health and Human Services and the "information on this website has been provided primarily by hospitals that have agreed to submit quality information."

Check Resourceshelf which links an article from National Public Radio about Hospital Compare.
