The AARP has posted the results of a national survey in which physicians gave their top choices for “out-of-town” hospitals based on specialty, writes Healthcare Finance News. The list was compiled by the nonprofit Consumers’ Checkbook and coincides with the release of the May/June issue of AARP The Magazine, which features information for consumers deciding whether to travel away from home for medical care. The survey was part of the research for a new book from Consumers’ Checkbook called Consumers’ Guide to Hospitals, which uses volumes of government safety statistics and data on death and complication rates, along with survey results, to compare and rank hospitals in the country’s 53 largest metro areas.
