Pneumonia
Length of Stay

The term length of stay in health care refers to the period of time (in days) that spans from when a patient was admitted to the hospital to the time they are discharged. At UTMB Health, we use length of stay index to compare ourselves to other hospitals. Lower numbers are better.

UTMB’s length of stay index for patients with patients with pneumonia was below 1.0 in 2015, meaning that these patients’ hospital stays were shorter than expected. UTMB’s Length of Stay index for this condition has been lower (better) than our Academic Medical Center Peers since 2012. The average length of stay in the hospital for UTMB patients with pneumonia was just over 4.5 days in 2015.
