Late last week, the Toronto Star asked a very interesting question: Why can’t Ontarians compare or assess the quality of care inside their province’s hospitals? Indeed, while The Fraser Institute’s recently released Hospital Report Card: Ontario 2006 provided a direct comparison of the care inside Ontario’s acute care hospitals, only 43 out of a total of 136 hospitals allowed their names to be published along side their results. The other 93 decided that they would rather not be held accountable for their performance.
