How Do We Compare?
The comparison measurements below –called "quality indicators" – have been chosen by Federal and state agencies and other organizations as measurements of high quality medical care for certain conditions representing some of the most common and costly conditions that hospitals treat. They measure whether important, recommended medical treatments are given to achieve the best results for patients.
Hospital Quality Indicators:
Why we chose these measurements
We have featured these particular quality indicators because they are considered accepted measurements by respected authorities on health care quality. In addition, they allow us to compare our performance against state and national averages.
You may see these indicators on other health care Web sites, as we work together to consistently measure the care we provide to patients.
