Committed to Quality


Our commitment to quality is long-standing and ongoing: We strive to provide the safest, highest-quality care for our patients.


OHSU previously provided quality data--the same information we use internally to continually improve our performance--from the University Hospital Consortium (UHC). UHC data helps you make apples-to-apples comparisons with other hospitals like us: academic health centers that provide the most complex and difficult care.

We are working on refining our understanding of how the data we use at the level of individual clinical specialties matches up to UHC data, which is reported in the aggregate: doing so will help us better understand how we can keep making quality improvements.

In the meantime, we'd like to direct you instead to data from other sources like the Joint Commission, the State of Oregon and the Hospital Compare site (see links at right).


If you have any questions about what these data mean, feel free to .
