Silly question about hospital choices

If you're going to be requesting a repeat section, how should you choose your hospital? With DS I chose based on the wonderful MW led birth centre (which I never got to use!) but the hospital was not the closest.

If you're never going to benefit from labour ward/ birth centre etc, how should you choose a hospital?

Look at hygiene/MRSA type ratings (particularly important with surgery...)?

Look at the quality of postnatal care (how long they will let you stay, whether you will be in a ward or private room, whether your partner can "room in", any lactation specialists (if that is important to you), how they look after CS patients (do they expect you to collect your own meals, change nappies etc))?

Thanks, would most of that be in some kind of official report?
