Hospital Care Comparison

by Jessica Cervantez

There is now a new resource to find out information about the quality care of your hospital.

A new website, www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov will allow you to research the care of any hospital across the nation and to compare them to others. It is just another way for consumers to be able to make better informed health care decisions for their loved ones.

Dr. William Gamel, of the Texas Medical Foundation, said, "But, for the first time, we have an accurate credible source of information about the quality in hospitals that now can serve the community, serve patients and their families. You can make apples to apples comparisons regarding the information about each hospital."

People are encouraged to review the date on Hospital Compare and visit with their doctors about any questions or concerns.
