At Beaumont Health System, our patients' health and safety are our top priorities. Our outcomes measures play a significant role in our efforts toward medical progress and innovation. With these measures, you'll see that Beaumont compares favorably to other hospitals, not just in Michigan, but across the U.S.
The procedures listed below are just a small portion of the wide range of specialties and services offered at Beaumont. The procedures displayed are those we feel are most useful and informative to our patients.
The intent behind measuring patient mortality, or patient deaths, is to draw attention to the outcome of hospitalization in order to enhance the quality improvement initiatives of the hospital. Beaumont uses this measure to examine how we practice medicine and how to constantly improve how we provide care to our patients. These data are provided to better inform consumers and patients about their health-care choices.
The chart below illustrates our percentage of deaths compared to the expected percentage in an average U.S. hospital, adjusted for patient risk factors. This data only refers to mortality rates during a patients' hospital stay.
