Four BC Hospitals Recognized for Surgical Care Quality
Burnaby Hospital, Chilliwack General Hospital, Lions Gate Hospital and Surrey Memorial Hospital were recognized in November by the American College of Surgeons' National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) for exemplary results for patients in surgical care. [They] were recognized in the "all cases" category for outcomes in … urinary tract infection... Using validated, risk-adjusted data from NSQIP, sites are able to compare their data provincially, nationally, and internationally as well as identify specific areas on which to focus their improvement efforts.
