Hospital costs represent one-third of all health care spending, an estimated $1 trillion each year. But more spending doesn’t always mean better care — some hospitals spend much less than others while still achieving excellent patient outcomes.

We’ll discuss these questions and more with health care experts and the creators of the Lown Hospitals Index on October 27th. Join the conversation!
