Stroke Readmission Rates

UTMB defines hospital readmission as patient admission to a hospital within 30 days after being discharged from an earlier hospital stay.

While UTMB’s 30-day all-cause readmissions rates for patients who suffered a stroke have remained steady or shown slight improvement over the last couple of years, our rates remain slightly above (worse than) our Academic Medical Center Peers' average. In 2015, just under 11% of UTMB patients diagnosed with a stroke returned to the hospital within 30 days for reasons related or unrelated to their stroke.
