UPMC Quality Measures

At UPMC, nothing is more important than making sure our patients get the right care at the right time in the right way — every time. Our dedicated doctors, nurses, and staff constantly review our processes for continual improvement, introducing new ideas and implementing best practices to enhance UPMC’s already excellent record of care. We measure our performance against the best hospitals nationwide, resulting in outcomes that let you, our patient, know how well we are performing.

We invite you to take some time to review and compare our outcomes. Our goal is to not only provide you with the highest quality of care, but also to empower you to make confident and well-informed health care decisions. The numbers and their meanings can appear to be hard to understand and not easy to compare side-by-side. Please discuss what you learn and any questions you may have with your doctor.
