In Arkansas Hospitals Nov 07 2019

Medical Center of South Arkansas, El Dorado, AR is among the top ranked Hospitals for the Highest Revenue Per Day for Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage Hospitalizations in Arkansas. Dexur analyzed Jan 2016 to Dec 2018 Medicare claims data to rank hospitals by Revenue per Day for Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage Hospitalizations.
