« Map: Cesarean Delivery Rates by State, 2010 | Did Tort Reform in Texas Lower the State's Total Cesarean Rate? »

Practice Variation in New Jersey: 27 Miles and 28 Percentage Points

By Jill Arnold

Readers are sending in pictures they have taken of hospitals to use for cesarean rate graphics on the CesareanRates.com Facebook page. A woman named Bess sent in two pictures that look like the start of an interesting story about how "where you live is what you get" and how rates of procedure utilization can vary so wildly within such a small geographic area.



Now travel 27 miles to Lakewood, NJ.


...and you will find Kimball Medical Center, which is where the reader that submitted these photos had a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) and thought people at the hospital were great.
