North County hospitals mostly average in state mortality report
North County Times

A newly released statewide mortality report gives most North County hospitals average ratings in terms of the number of patients who died from illnesses or procedures listed among 12 categories ranging from congestive heart failure to acute stroke. However, the report, which reflects patient data from 2008 and 2009, does rate a few local hospitals “better” or “worse” than average in some categories.
