The federal government released a report Wednesday, May 8, showing that costs for the same treatments varied widely between different hospitals in the same state and even the same city.
The cost data collected on hospitals in Pennsylvania includes such hospitals as Pottstown Memorial Medical Center, Phoenixville Hospital and Reading Hospital and Medical Center. Users can search for hospitals by facility name or search the type of treatment. Not all operations or treatments available at area hospitals were looked at, and therefore some procedures will not be on the list.
