Safety and quality - Number of patients
Why we measure it - Research shows that doctors and hospitals that treat a large number of patients tend to have better results.
What this means - The chart shows our admissions have been steady. In 2009, there was an increase in admissions after we opened a new patient care tower.
About the data - This is the number of patients admitted to the hospital. It includes patients who stayed at the hospital less than 24 hours.
What we're doing to provide the best care:
We opened a new patient care tower in 2009. It increased our number of patient beds to 296 with room to grow. Private rooms support privacy and comfort for patients and their families.
We offer the Family Accommodations Program to help make travel plans and appointments for families coming to our hospital from a long distance.
