    Hospitals are required to collect and submit various quality and patient safety related data to regulatory, State and Federal entities. These data are published nationally and statewide, allowing patients, doctors, consumers and payors to compare St. Mary with other facilities. The following websites are the most commonly used:

    Joint Commission Quality Check 
    CHART/California State  
    US Department of Health and Human Services 

    Hospital Compare 

    Hospital Compare was created through the efforts of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Department of Health and Human Services, and other members of the Hospital Quality Alliance: Improving Care Through Information (HQA). The information on this website comes from hospitals that have agreed to submit quality information for Hospital Compare to make public.

    The website link above allows patients and payors to find information on how well hospitals care for patients with certain medical conditions or surgical procedures, and results from a survey of patients about the quality of care they received during a recent hospital stay. This information will help you compare the quality of care hospitals provide.
