Modern Healthcare

Fewer women ages 65 years and older were hospitalized for congestive heart failure in 2010 than in 2000, but this improvement was offset by an increase in congestive heart failure hospitalizations for men younger than 65, according to a new data brief from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics. There were about 1 million congestive heart failure hospitalizations in both years, resulting in a rate of 32.8 hospitalizations per 10,000 people in 2010 compared with 35.5 in 2000.
