I didn't "avoid" anything - I was simply relaying information. I have
only once sought "emergency" care (at Banner-Boswell, which IMO ranks
near rock bottom and will never see me again) I can only vouch for the
fact that before they would even LOOK at me, I had to provide them
with my insurance information.

It's normal procedure for all hospitals to ask if you have insurance.
It does not mean that you would not have been treated had you not had
insurance. My next door neightbor works in a hospital billing
department and she says that many are treated that do not have
insurance. Some pay by payments each month and others who are not
financially able end up not paying at all.

The Thomson Reuters hospital performance rankings take into account many
areas, including mortality, medical complications, patient safety,

evaluates patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards of care,
post-discharge mortality and readmission rates for heart attack, heart
failure and pneumonia.

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Thomson Reuters researchers
evaluated 2,886 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals.
