Why Quality Matters

UTMB Health is dedicated to providing a world-class patient experience for our patients by delivering the most advanced care and providing the highest level of safety in our hospitals and clinics so patients can have the best possible outcomes.

Quality of care rankings and awards help patients make informed decisions on which health care providers deliver the highest quality of care in a safe environment.  While recognition for our ongoing efforts to deliver the best care is nice, the true value of quality of care rankings and awards is helping patients decide with confidence where to seek care.

 

What UTMB’s commitment to safety and quality of care means for our patients:

Best Care

Delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right way, for the right person – and have the best possible results – every patient, every time.

Patient Safety

Avoiding complications and adverse events, like bed sores, blood infections or clots, and surgical infections, following surgeries, procedures and childbirth.
