Washington Times, May 10, 2012

Four hospitals in Northern Virginia charged patients an average of 11 percent more for three dozen services between 2008 and 2010, according to The Washington Examiner's review of the most recent data from Virginia Health Information, a nonpartisan nonprofit that studies health care.
