PHC4 Reports on Common Procedures

The Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council has published a new report detailing hospital performance on four common surgical procedures:  knee replacement, hip replacement, spinal fusion, and coronary artery bypass graft.

The report details individual hospital performance on these procedures, including in-hospital mortality, complications, and extended post-operative length of stay.  In addition, it breaks down hospital performance for all of these measures and all of these procedures based on patient age, income, gender, geographic location, and race and ethnicity.

The PHC4 report also reveals how many of these procedures individual hospitals performed and how much they charged for their services.
