    Pneumonia Treatment - Sutter Health System Average

    Pneumonia and Influenza are the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. The incidence of pneumonia increases with age, and approximately 90 percent of deaths in the population aged 65 or older are due to this condition. Below are some of the key areas that medical experts focus on when caring for patients with pneumonia. They include important actions that should be taken when a patient is hospitalized with pneumonia.

    Sutter Health System Average: The Sutter Health System Average (mean) is calculated by taking the sum of all non-excluded hospitals' scores (where at least one case met the inclusion criteria) and dividing by the total number of hospitals.
