Core Measures

One specific area of monitoring is called Core Measures. Core Measures were established in 2002 by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. These measures show how often hospitals give the recommended treatments known to get the best results for patients with certain medical conditions or surgical procedures.

We're proud to share the most recent data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ 3rd quarter 2015 report of North Suburban’s quality efforts related to Core Measures:

  • Heart Attack: 100%
  • Heart Failure: 100%
  • Pneumonia: 100%
  • Surgical Care: 100%
  • Vaccines: 100%
  • Stroke: 100%
  • Blood Clot Prevention and Treatment (VTE): 100%
  • Pregnancy Care: 100%

It wouldn't be possible to maintain these high scores without the efforts of our doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals. Because of them, we are able to provide the highest levels of care to the communities we serve.
