Hospital Quality

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care's network includes more than 182 of the area's most respected community, teaching and specialty hospitals. Many of these hospitals are recognized around the world for their excellence and high quality.

What is Harvard Pilgrim doing to identify high quality hospitals?

Harvard Pilgrim reviews hospital quality outcomes reported on Hospital Compare. Measures that are reviewed include those for timely and effective care, patient experience, readmissions, mortality, surgery, and health care associated infection.
