We hope it never happens, but for most of us there will come a time when we need to be in the hospital. We trust that our doctor or healthcare provider knows the system and which hospitals are best for us, but to borrow a concept from the Declaration of Independence, when it comes to certain types of care, not all hospitals are created equal.
This is particularly true when it comes to care related to children (pediatric care), burn care, trauma care, cardiac care and stroke care. Yet there has never been a single accessible database in an app with that information at your fingertips.
Whether you or a loved one are in a specialty care hospital and wondering if it is credentialed for your/their specialty need, or if you are moving to a new area, or planning for travel, or have a newly diagnosed heart or stroke condition, or a new baby, knowing the nearest specialty facilities can save you from heartache, and uncertainty.
