Achieving our vision to become a national leader for health requires us to ensure every patient's complete satisfaction in all aspects of care. We work hard to make sure that happens by continually improving our clinical and operational processes. We believe that having better information will help you make better health care decisions.
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. Research suggests that the more a surgical team does the same procedure together and the higher the volume, the better the clinical results. More than 100 studies have demonstrated better results at high-volume hospitals in heart surgery, major cancer resections and other procedures.
