At Banner Health, we believe patients should have accurate and easy-to-understand information to make the best health care decisions for themselves and their families. It's an integral part of our philosophy of making a difference in people's lives through excellent patient care.
Increasingly, more organizations provide information about the quality of care at hospitals to help patients make more informed decisions.
We report how we perform in certain areas that are important to consumers, such as:
- Treating heart-attack patients
- Treating heart-failure patients
- Mortality rates
- Patient safety
- Treating pneumonia patients
- Preventing infections in critically ill patients
- Surgical care
We collect this information as part of our Care Management program, which gathers data from each of our 29 hospitals and measures our performance against national standards to improve how we provide patient care. Working as a team, we set goals to improve and maintain our performance. It is part of our strength as a system that we take innovations tested at one hospital and then replicate them at other facilities. At Banner Health, we are constantly working to provide consistent, reliable, evidence-based care at all of our facilities.
Our Quality results for all our facilities can be found at Hospital Compare.
