New health report guages performance at local hospitals

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – The Niagara Health Quality Coalition has released its latest report card measuring hospitals in New York State, and facilities across the state are showing signs of improvement in patient care and the reduction of death rates.

The Buffalo News reports that hospitals in Western New York scored notably well in the area of lowering the instances of patient readmission.

The coalition began its annual review of hospitals in 1998, and the report has grown to become a valuable tool in the industry. A full copy of the report can be found at My-Health-Finder dot com.
