Interactive Map: Comparing Childbirth At Mass. Hospitals

This article is more than 9 years old.

Compare the Massachusetts hospitals that perform deliveries in the interactive map below. The map contains five childbirth quality measures that WBUR selected after polling both experts and expectant moms. For more about the measures and how we chose them, see our companion story.

And if you think there are more important things to consider when choosing a hospital, please tell us in this survey.

Correction: An earlier version of this interactive included an incorrect early elective delivery rate for Holyoke Medical Center. Its correct EED rate is 0 percent. We regret the error.

Editor's note: Thanks to Jessica Martin at The Boston Foundation for her early assistance with vetting data and project design.
