  1. aAnalyses of death, rehab, and VATS were adjusted for age, race, gender, insurance, year, zip income quartile, hospital region, hospital location, hospital teaching status, hospital bedsize, and AHRQ Elixhauser Comorbidity index for in-hospital mortality. Analyses of lung transplantation were adjusted for these same variables, but not hospital teaching status and urban/rural location, because the proportion of lung transplantations exhibiting these characteristics was either 0% or 100%
  2. bThe analysis for rehabilitation transfer demonstrated questionable model fit
