Compare Your Local Hospitals

Here's a cool link to the HHS Hospital Compare site. It lets you compare up to three local hospitals side by side over a range of behaviors. It even lets you see patient satisfaction survey results. I blogged about this site when it first appeared, but now there is a whole lot more data that has been collected and the site is also faster and easier to navigate. Oh, and guess what? The much maligned charity hospital where I am employed stacks up as well or better than the local big boys. The most satisfying part is that our patient satisfaction seems to be higher than any other local facility. Go us!
