How does Spectrum Health compare to local hospitals?

The following charts show how Spectrum Health compares to other local hospitals. These numbers come from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Hospital Compare website.

We know practice makes perfect in health care as in most of life. That's why the number or volume of procedures that a hospital or a physician performs can be a valuable yardstick of clinical quality, especially when considered alongside additional quality measures and other factors. We average just 56 minutes between a heart attack patient's arrival in our chest pain center and the start of lifesaving treatment. Nationally, the goal is 90 minutes or less. Faster is better.
