B neglects to mention rehabilitation clinics, which IMO changes the meaning of the sentence. Can anyone speak to why this answer is correct?

A, C, D are out. Because there is no parallelism.
Am I right that we choose B and not E because it is correct to use "nationwide" alone, so "nationwide hospitals" does not pass.

B it is.

First of all... It should be " both and " . " Increase in both " is wrong as a change cannot be increased

Between B and E :

B states no. Of admissions to hospital emergency rooms nationwide.

E states no. Of admissions to emergency rooms of nationwide hospitals .. may imply that nationwide is a franchise of hospitals..and the no. Of admissions has increased only in those hospitals named nationwide.

Your distinction is absolutely right. Nationwide hospitals seems to be a franchise of hospitals...whereas hospitals nationwide means hospitals all over the nation.

I believe the underlined part needs to be corrected. "Rehabilitation clinics" is missing in all choices except A
