Just read an article on how to choose the hospital for a child http://community.today.com/parentingteam/post/how-to-choose-the-best-hospital-for-your-child and should say that it’s not an easy task as it seems. The article gives a nice classification of the hospitals and recommendations on how to choose the best one. But to my mind, the search should start with the doctor first. Without doubt, facilities and equipment the hospital has play a significant role. However, it’s much more important who will treat your son or daughter. I think, you can easily put up with the lack of some amenities if you have sense that your kid is in the right hands.
