In Idaho Hospitals Oct 02 2019

St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, Lewiston, ID is among the top ranked Hospitals for the Highest Revenue Per Day for Pulmonary Embolism Hospitalizations in Idaho. Dexur analyzed Oct 2015 to Sep 2018 Medicare claims data to rank hospitals by Revenue per Day for Pulmonary Embolism Hospitalizations.
