Statewide, 111 hospitals out of 456 provided information, including five in Orange County. The hospitals reported on everything from births to organ transplants.

In all, more than 69,000 visits were made to emergency rooms and nearly 11,000 cancer treatments were provided to those insured by Covered California plans at the hospitals surveyed.
