Why Publish Quality Information?

All hospitals gather quality data, though few disclose it to the public. However, wouldn't you want to receive care at the best possible healthcare facility? If you were a patient in need of a surgical procedure, you would probably want to know certain information about a hospital's surgical infection rates, or whether that hospital follows best-practice protocols. This site will show you how Advocate Sherman Hospital performs against both State and national benchmarks. By publishing our quality data, we are arming you with information you can use to make a knowledgeable decision about where you choose to receive care.

To become one of the best community hospitals in the nation, we closely monitor the quality of care and services we provide by measuring what we do and how we do it. We also listen to what our patients and families have to say about our services -- from their experience in the Emergency Room to the quality of the meals served to patients. All of this information is collected and used to help us constantly improve the way we heal you.
