Measuring Care

North Shore-LIJ uses a series of well-established performance measures to demonstrate the quality of care we deliver to our patients and the communities we serve. As an organization we believe in transparency and in openly sharing our performance data with the public.

The links below will bring you directly to the quality reports for our hospitals as reported by national healthcare organizations such as the New York State Department of Health, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Joint Commission.

North Shore-LIJ hospitals provide some of New York State’s best outcomes for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) — a nonsurgical procedure to treat narrowed arteries — and open-heart surgery, according to reports by the New York State Department of Health (DOH). The DOH analyses of outcomes in hospitals across the state over the years have contributed to continuous improvement in the care that is delivered to New Yorkers with heart disease. See graphics below for PCI and cardiac surgery outcomes for North Shore-LIJ Health System programs offering these services.
