Quality & Safety

Quality & Safety

We strive to be your trusted source of information. To help you begin making informed choices for health care services, we provide the following hospital comparison data.

The methods listed below showcase a hospital’s ability to provide quality care for patients. Because each patient is different and outcomes of each case cannot always be predicted, measuring this data can often be difficult. The collection of health care data can also be challenging. As with any major health care decision, it’s best to compare as many measurement types as possible to form the most complete picture of a hospital's total quality of care.

  • Recruiting and retaining competent skilled employees, with staffing to patient ratios to allow for optimal patient experience
  • Dedicated, specialized medical staff with proven quality outcomes
  • State of the art diagnostic tools, instrumentation , and equipment
  • Ongoing performance evaluation and risk assessments to improve processes, workflows, and patient outcomes
  • Full time Patient Advocate to enhance the patient experience
