USA Today has a good story today on the latest mortality statistics of hospitals across the country.
You can search for local hospitals by ZIP code here on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Web site, although I found USA Today’s interactive map a little easier to use.
A word of caution, though: These mortality stats are just for Medicare patients in the areas of heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia. The stats are from 2006 and 2007.
