Quality and Outcomes 

When your child needs medical care, you want the best

Our leadership, physicians and staff have established goals to meet and exceed the standards set by industry leaders, using the best hospitals in the nation as our benchmarks.

We follow standards of care and expectations established by national organizations that support quality improvement, including: Children’s Hospitals Solutions for Patient Safety, Vermont Oxford Network, Children’s Hospital Association, The Joint Commission, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Agency for Health Care Research in Quality (AHRQ), the National Quality Forum, and The Leapfrog Group.

These organizations provide measurement tools that help us continually evaluate and ensure the highest quality of care in our hospital. Families can also use this information to make informed decisions about their child’s health care needs.
