Committed to Quality Care
The physicians, nurses and support staff at Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to our patients. As part of this commitment, we have quality and safety initiatives in place that we closely monitor so that we can assess the care we provide. Additionally, we listen to our patients to learn about their experience during all aspects of their treatment. The information we gather is then used to make positive changes in the way we treat our patients.
It is important to us that you have the information you need to make informed decisions about your healthcare. The Sunrise Health hospitals have worked in conjunction with the Nevada Hospital Association and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to voluntarily submit data in order to provide you with meaningful information. This information, as well as accreditations and certifications by independent, third party organizations, can serve as a starting point in learning more about healthcare and what is right for you and your family. We encourage you to explore the links below and learn more about Southern Hills Hospital's commitment to quality. While these links focus on several health conditions, they do not address all conditions. Therefore, we recommend that you also talk to your physician and healthcare providers about your specific needs and the strengths of the hospital.
The Hospital Compare website was created through the combined efforts of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), along with the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA). Hospital Compare displays rates for Process of Care measures that show whether or not hospitals provide some of the care that is recommended for patients being treated for a heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia or patients having surgery. The data include patients with Medicare, those enrolled in Medicare health plans and those who don't have Medicare.
Nevada Hospital Association
The Nevada Hospital Association includes hospital performance measures for all Nevada hospitals reporting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which includes the Hospital Compare data for Process of Care Measures, and the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research (AHRQ), which includes information on Patient Safety Indicators.
