HospitalCharge.com is a company that provides the public with necessary information about costs of medical procedures that includes the cost to treat specific diagnoses. Our goal is to ensure that the public has in its hands the vital tool to compare hospitals, physicians, and other providers’ healthcare services and related charges across the United States to make informed decisions on how much they will spend on health services. This idea took form in 2011 after a nurse (The Founder) had conversations with several patients who had the same complaint. In one patient's words, "I wish they had told me how much things were going to cost before I had the surgery so I would not be so shocked now and worried about it and what else they might surprise me with?" HospitalCharge.com presents diagnoses and procedures data of more than 3,000 hospitals and nearly 1 million healthcare Providers in the United States.
