Know about the hospital you are using

The US Department for Health and Human Services (HHS) has a Hospital Compare website that is designed to make it easier for patients and their families to find out how conditions vary among hospitals.

In the area that I and I know many others live there is really only one hospital that is in a reasonable distance from their home or is covered by their insurance for day to day issues.  However, if you need significant treatment or surgery the drive may be worth it.  Hopefully this tool will help you make informed choices.
