High-Quality Heart Care

UPMC is committed to delivering high-quality heart care. This quality is based on a combination of highly skilled doctors, nurses, technologists and other health care providers; state-of-the-art facilities and technology; and a commitment to delivering the right care, to the right patient, at the right time.

Quality is a reflection of how well we take care of patients. And this is measured by recording and reviewing patient outcomes, which simply means the results of a treatment or surgery.

Confirming our Commitment to Quality  

The UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute recently formed the Center for Quality Outcomes and Clinical Research (CQOR) to better track patient results and allow our experts to review outcomes to find ways to improve the care we provide.

UPMC is among just a few centers in the country that have created dedicated centers for outcomes tracking, demonstrating the importance UPMC places on delivering high-quality care.
