The hospital in which I work in Houston, in the heart of the state’s drug-related heroin crisis, is the latest to face criticism over its high cost.
But the city’s other four hospitals are also among the worst, according to a new analysis of data compiled by a research firm.
The analysis was conducted by the non-profit organization Health Policy Research Institute and shows that Houston’s hospital network has the worst ratios of ER visits to ER visits for all four hospitals.
The average cost of each hospital in the city is $2,300 per ER visit, with a median cost of $1,800 per ER call.
Those numbers, which were calculated from hospital billing records, aren’t perfect, as the data is only for the city of Houston.
But in Houston as a whole, the cost of hospital care is more than $100,000 higher than the national average, according the analysis.
In other words, Houston’s hospitals are far and away the worst in the country.
A quick look at the top four hospitals shows how bad their costs are, with the hospital in a nearby town spending $3,000 per ER patient.
And the average cost per ER is $5,200, a ratio that is more expensive than the nation’s other big cities.
The data is from the most recent reporting period.
Hospitals like Memorial and Mercy are also expensive in comparison.
Both hospitals have had multiple scandals in recent years that have resulted in multiple deaths, according in part to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The hospital system in Houston has been plagued with serious billing issues, and there have been multiple reports of serious safety issues.
In the first quarter of this year, a hospital in Southlake, Texas, shut down and shut down the entire hospital.
The facility was closed by an internal crisis, and two of its doctors were charged with murder.
According to a statement from the hospital, the two doctors who were charged are not connected to the hospital.
This isn’t the first time a hospital has been investigated for safety issues after a patient died there.
In 2017, a doctor at Memorial Hospital in Austin, Texas died after a child died in the hospital’s intensive care unit.
It was the second time in four years that a hospital had been investigated and shuttered.
In 2018, Memorial was the site of a major fire, which killed eight patients and injured three others.
The Texas Medical Board said at the time that the hospital had not taken any action against any employees for the incident.
This is the fifth hospital to be investigated for its safety problems since 2016.
Houston’s four hospitals ranked in the top 10 are Memorial, Mercy, Memorial Southwest and Houston Methodist.
The study also examined how many patients had been treated at each hospital.
Memorial Southwest has the highest ER use rate, with 10.6 percent of patients in the emergency department needing help.
Mercy Southwest has more than double the ER use of all four other hospitals, with 11.2 percent of the patients needing help in the ER.
In contrast, Houston Methodist has the lowest ER use for all of its hospitals, at 1.4 percent.
Hospice hospitals are the third-largest hospital network in the nation.
The largest of the three largest hospice networks in the state is Memorial HealthCare, with 6,000 beds.
The other two largest hospitals are Memorial University Medical Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Memorial is home to more than 20,000 patients.
Houston Methodist is home for a little more than 4,000.
The top hospitals in the list are Memorial Health, Mercy and Memorial Southwest.
Houston has a long history of serious problems at its hospitals.
In 2011, a fatal ER infection in Memorial Hospital led to a major lockdown of the facility and the closure of nearly a third of the hospital until a temporary fix was implemented.
That was followed by a spike in infections in Memorial in 2015, which led to the closure and shuttering of Memorial Southwest in 2017.
In 2019, Memorial had two separate outbreaks of salmonella in 2017, which resulted in two deaths.
That outbreak led to hospital closures and the temporary shuttering in 2018.
In 2020, Memorial opened an emergency room in the name of a patient who died in a car accident.
In 2021, Memorial reopened the emergency room to treat patients for a new case of salmon pneumonia, but it closed it again in the same year to treat another patient.
In February 2018, a patient at Memorial died of an infection after he was admitted to the emergency rooms because he had been discharged from a hospital with pneumonia.
In December 2018, Houston Medical Center shut down after a salmonell outbreak in a nursing home and the hospital became a designated facility for the spread of the virus.
In September 2018, the Houston Health Department announced a new plan to improve patient care, but the hospital remained shuttered and has yet to be fully re-opened.
That plan included an open enrollment initiative, which allowed residents to get in touch with the system by calling 311 or calling the hospital at 713-935-33
