Jill and Andie - I did not see Parkview North Hospital on the list. I had unnecesareans there in 2007 and 2009. Thank you for the list though, I think I'll be making the trip with Rachel to Mishawaka if I ever need to hospital birth again!

September 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

I noticed that one hospital (St. Joseph in Mishawaka) has a rate in the single digits. I wonder why that is. That's a huge discrepancy. What are they doing differently??

September 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Kindred is a rehab/long term acute care hospital. They've not done a c-section ever. And, Clarian Arnett hasn't been open long enough to have a statistically valid rate.

September 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMary

Mary, that should have said St. Vincent Carmel Hospital instead of Kindred. Their Hospital ID #'s are one number different and I put the wrong one. Thanks for pointing that out. Jill, can you change that?

September 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndie

Mishawaka has a lot of Amish in the area, who would be less likely to accept interventions. I wonder if that's one reason their rate is so low?

September 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndie

Lauren, Parkview North didn't have any hospital discharge data listed for 2008. I'm assuming that means they didn't submit it to the state. I went back and looked at the 2007 files and they didn't have any data listed for that year either.

September 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndie

Andie, I made the change.

September 19, 2010 | Registered CommenterJill

The rates here were calculated by dividing total cesareans by total births based on hospital discharge data. That's really all these numbers tell you. The data hasn't been teased or scrubbed.

September 19, 2010 | Registered CommenterJill

Kindred Hospital is a hospital and does do deliveries Amanda. It is true that they have long-term rehab centers, but they also have hospitals here in Indianapolis.

September 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAta

Ata, I wasn't the one that posted about Kindred, that was Mary, but if they have hospitals in Indianapolis, that's news to me and a lot of other people from the Indianapolis area who are wondering the same thing.
