                                                 How to Choose a Hospital

                  It is always a good idea to do a little research before you’re checked into a
           hospital. Learning about different hospitals beforehand insures that the facility will fit
           all of your needs.

           Here are just a couple of tips:

           1. Take your doctor’s advice but also question it. Find out why he or she suggests a
           certain hospital for you. Does this hospital accept your insurance, can you afford the
           hospital, and does the hospital specialize in the procedure you’re having done?

           2. Shop around. Contact different hospitals and ask about their staff ratios, treatment
           options, referral networks, and outcome measures. This type of information should help
           you in your decision.

           3. Get their grades. Every hospital is rated by the National Accreditation Agency. There
           is a lot of hospital rating information to be found at the library or on Internet. Check
           www.healthgrades.com, this site has everything you need to know about finding a
           hospital. They have hospital ratings, maps to different hospitals, anything you could
           possibly need to know about hospitals.

           4. Ask your friends and family. Often times, word of mouth from those you trust is a
           good way to find out which hospitals are great and which hospitals are not so great.

           5. Talk to your health care benefit officer at work or other fellow employees. These
           people will most likely have the same health insurance so hospitals they went to will
           probably accept your insurance.
