(WVLT) - If you ever have to choose a hospital, there's a now a new place to go for information.
Starting today, Medicare will post a report card on the internet, listing death rates for heart attacks and heart failure at the nation's hospitals.
At least twenty states already post similar information.
Medicare officials say it's a way to keep patients informed, and hold doctors accountable for their results.
To see the new website, go to www.Medicare.gov.
