Penalized for patient recidivism
More than 2,200 hospitals have begun paying penalties for having poor readmission rates with their Medicare patients as part of the federal government's effort to improve quality and lower costs of care. Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital will not be one of those hospitals, nor will Catholic Medical Center, Frisbie Memorial Hospital, and Lakes Region General Hospital, all of which achieved the best score possible. At the other end of the spectrum is Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, which had the worst score in the state. What does it all mean, and what do the hospitals at either end of the spectrum have to say about their ratings?

Like variety? Check out Boston
Few cities juxtapose old and new like Boston does. With modern skyscrapers soaring amid street after brick-sidewalked street of 18th- and 19th-century townhouses and historic sites, it's a city of contrast. Even if you've visited before, you'll find something new to discover. This city, which locals modestly call The Hub (as in the Hub of the Universe) is continually changing, and the last few years have seen some amazing new developments.
