Delaware Business Now receives rankings listing Delaware almost daily. Here are some from our In Box.

The latest US News & World Report Best States Rankings continued to bring positive news, with Delaware ranking close to the top for hospital quality.

According to US News and World Report, Delaware ranked second nationally.

“Hospitals in Delaware are committed to providing the best possible care to each and every Delaware resident, and it shows,” said Wayne A. Smith, CEO of the Delaware Healthcare Association. “Quality healthcare has always been a priority for Delaware’s hospitals and healthcare systems. You invest in, practice and evaluate the quality. Quality improvement is a never-ending mission, and we are incredibly proud of Delaware’s hospitals and the recognition of their efforts to ensure quality patient care that benefits every Delawarean.”
Delaware scored well compared to other states in the following categories:

The ranking was based on the treatment of nine procedures and conditions: abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, aortic valve surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, colon cancer surgery, congestive heart failure, cardiac bypass surgery, hip replacement, knee replacement, and lung cancer surgery

List the eight highest health care costs

Cost is an issue when it comes to hospitals and healthcare in general.

Forbes Advisor analyzed 11 key metrics using data from the Kaiser Family Foundation and found that Delaware ranked the 8th most expensive state to pay for healthcare.

The ranking comes as no surprise given the state’s history of high healthcare costs.

A lack of competition among healthcare providers and a high incidence of chronic diseases were cited as factors.

South Dakota tops the list of states with the most expensive healthcare, while Michigan is the cheapest.

Insurance rates in Delaware have a high cost per mile

It’s no secret that Delaware has one of the highest rates for auto insurance, beating even New Jersey, which used to have one of the nation’s highest rates until reforms were made to the system.

This ranking from Finance Buzz is a little different from other auto insurance rankings as it calculates the cost per kilometer insured.

Delaware is essentially connected to California and Louisiana with insurance costs being 16 cents per mile. The lowest rate is in Wyoming, where drivers in the state with lots of wide open spaces accumulate many vehicle miles per year but only pay six cents per mile for coverage.

Hotels are an engine of the state economy

Hotels in Delaware are a bigger part of the economy than many of us realize.

That was one of the interesting things that came out of a recent report.

Hotels in Hawaii are, on average, larger and generate more revenue per facility than any other state.

The total number of hotel workers in the state is just over 4,000.
