What We Report
At UTMB, we believe in delivering high-quality health care provided in a safe, patient- and family-centered environment. To help us understand how well we are performing in these areas, we participate in several programs that measure the quality of our care. These programs look at our patient outcomes, or how well our patients fared after receiving treatment.
We offer timely reports on the categories listed below. Data for these categories information can also be found on Hospital Compare, but because there is a delay between the time that the data is submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), we like to share our most recent performance data on this website. Information is updated on a quarterly annual basis.
