In the following quality and patient safety reports, you will find information on how hospitals in the Centura Health network compare in caring for patients with certain medical conditions or surgical procedures, as well as results from a survey of patients about the quality of care they received during a recent hospital stay. The information will help you see how the Centura Health network and your local hospital provide quality care. The rate for a measure will not be displayed if a hospital has fewer than 20 eligible cases. We need at least 20 cases to calculate a reliable rate.
The data in the report shows hospital-specific patient satisfaction scores and their performance on several nationally recognized quality indicators and practices including patient safety measures. Performance is also displayed for the average hospital in the United States as a comparison where it is available.
These statistics and descriptions do not begin to represent all there is to know about the quality of hospitals. You should not attempt to choose a hospital based solely on statistics and descriptions such as those in this report. Our goal is to complement the governmental Web site, www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov
, allowing consumers real-time access to your local hospital’s information. The data also represents the most recent data available for these measures. Because our data is updated monthly, you may note discrepancies amongst the two sources. It is also important to note that we are committed to continually improving our performance . We work together as the largest healthcare system in Colorado to implement best practices.
