Pneumonia

At University Health Care System, patients are our priority, and we take pride in the care we provide. To monitor the quality of that care, we track specific quality measures and compare them to benchmark measures at local levels. We publish these quality measures so you can draw your own conclusions regarding your health care choices. Our comparison numbers are from Hospital Compare, an online tool provided by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. For additional detailed information select the "click for details" buttons on the left. The numbers used in these tables are from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013 and include patients with Medicare, those enrolled in Medicare health plans and those who don't have Medicare.

Note: Higher percentages are better for all measures listed.
