Quality Care Measures
Exceptional Care, Centered on You
At Woman's, we go beyond meeting the needs of the women and babies in our community by providing nationally-recognized, exceptional care to each and every patient we treat. We maintain standards of excellence that ensure you receive the best care possible. You don’t have to take our word for it, just look at our statistics.
When it comes to making health care decisions, it is important for you to have useful information from trusted sources. Woman's supports the effort to make hospital comparison data as available to the public as possible. As a service to you, we provide:
Improving clinical quality and patient safety on a continuous basis is a primary goal at Woman’s, and we believe in sharing this information with our patients and their families. We compare ourselves against many of the highest performing hospitals and health systems in the world, and share data with numerous national and international collaborative organizations, including the following:
- Woman’s is a founding member of The Council of Women’s and Infants’ Specialty Hospitals (CWISH), a unique subgroup of hospitals with large maternity services.
- The National Perinatal Information Center (NPIC) is a non-profit organization with charter membership of major perinatal centers across the U.S. It is recognized for its information and research resources to the health care community.
- Woman’s was the first in Louisiana to join the Institute For Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Collaborative On Perinatal Improvement, a network of more than 160 hospitals from around the world who strive to reduce harm to infants, improve safety in perinatal units and provide hospitals with measureable goals.
- The Vermont Oxford Network (VON) is an international group of 900 neonatal intensive care units who work together to improve the quality of care for high risk newborns and their families. Woman’s partners with hospital around the world to develop infant care policies and guidelines.
We encourage patients to view our publicly reported quality measures of our hospital performance.
