In Iowa Hospitals Nov 18 2019

Clarke County Hospital is among the top ranked Hospitals for the Highest Revenue Per Day for Renal Failure Hospitalizations within 100 miles of Osceola, IA. Dexur analyzed Jan 2016 to Dec 2018 Medicare claims data to rank hospitals by Revenue per Day for Renal Failure Hospitalizations.
