Patient Satisfaction

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 Jan. 1, 2012 through Dec. 31, 2012.

Note: Higher percentages are better for all measures listed.
