*These PA and US rates are case-weighted averages, which are calculated by dividing the total number of patients/cases that meet the received the recommended care according to the measure’s criteria by the total number of patients/cases that are eligible to be counted based on the measure’s inclusion criteria for all facilities included in the specified Hospital population.

**The Hospital quality measures reported on this website come from a variety of sources using several data collection processes and update schedules. While the PHCQA website contains the most recent publicly available information, the time periods represented by these data range from 6 to 24 months old. Caution should be used when drawing conclusions from these data as a Hospital’s performance may have changed significantly since the data was collected and reported. The PHCQA recommends you contact the Hospital directly to obtain the most recent performance data.
