Volumes

This graph shows the number of inpatient and outpatient surgeries we performed during the past eight years.

What does this data mean?
We performed nearly 38,000 surgeries in 2013.

Why do we track volumes?
Research shows that the more experience a surgical staff has the better they are. We also track the number of surgeries we do to make sure we are properly staffed.

How does Children’s help ensure we are providing high-quality care?

  • We monitor complications and compare ourselves to other surgery centers.
  • We work with specialists, doctors and nurses with pediatric experience.
  • We review a patient’s information, and we contact parents if we need more details.
  • The anesthesiologists specialize in taking care of the youngest patients and know how to put them safely to sleep.
