We are always looking for ways to improve the quality of care that we deliver to our patients.
One key indicator we track is our rate of hospital returns. Quality care during an initial hospital stay can keep patients from returning to the hospital. Re-admission rates show the percentage of patients who return to the hospital within 30 days of their initial visit. The lower the percentage of re-admissions, the better.
