What We Report

Our quality report cards are issued for specific conditions or procedures and compare the quality of our outcomes against the established standards for the treatment of the condition or performance of the procedure.

You may also view quality data reports for Grady Health System through these third-party sites:

Results posted on these sites reflect a rolling 12-month average and may not accurately convey progress toward achieving our quality objectives. For this reason, we have provided our most current quarterly performance. This data has been collected as part of our submission requirements but may not yet be displayed on the sites referenced above.

Patient satisfaction measures our patients and families perception of the quality of care provided during their stay or visit.

We currently measure ten areas:

  • The Admission Process

  • Your Experience during Tests and Treatments
  • Our Accommodations for your Visitors and Family

This partnership allows us to compare our patient satisfaction metrics to those of other healthcare providers in our area and nationwide.
