Clinical Quality at BayCare Health System

 
We continuously strive to ensure each patient receives the absolute best care and outcomes possible. Each day we continue to pioneer clinical excellence through innovative learning, continuous process improvement and most importantly patient safety. In caring for hundreds of thousands of patients and families each year, we recognize that our patients, families, communities may describe excellent care and quality outcomes in unique and personal ways. We at BayCare understand this uniqueness and value all perspectives on quality care. Agencies such as CMS Hospital Compare, Leapfrog, IBM/Watson Top Hospitals and Health Systems and others each bring a unique quality measurement approach. As such, we respect each of these efforts and would like to share some of our quality outcomes from a few of these reports.
