Missouri hospitals have released the second in a series of public reports on the quality of care to patients. This semi-annual report shows how often hospitals throughout the state provided currently recommend care for the three most common health problems affecting the largest patient populations treated in hospitals: heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia. Missouri Hospital Association President Marc Smith says the hospitals pass with flying colors. 83 hospitals provided data for this report. Another nine have pledged to take part in future statewide reports. Fourteen others have submitted the same data as part of a national quality reporting initiative.
