Quality and Performance

As a leading trauma center, we continually measure, evaluate and work to enhance our performance. It’s this ongoing commitment to quality that makes us preferred by referring physicians for trauma care.

  • Our process is critical to the lives of the injured patients in our care.  We measure our performance against the National Trauma DATA Bank and National Patient Satisfaction Scoring and use many other quality indicators to track patient safety and patient outcomes.
