U.S. hospitals vary widely in caring for women

Washington Post, June 25, 2008
Women who give birth at top-rated hospitals have fewer complications for Caesarean section and fewer complications for vaginal birth, according to a study. The report compared the quality of maternity and cardiac/stroke care for women at U.S. hospitals in 17 states. The analysis of maternity care included more than 12.5 million hospital delivery and newborn records from 2004 through 2006.
