Ways to Define Quality: Services Offered
Hospitals with a broad range of services can treat more complex medical conditions. These hospitals are better equipped to manage complications, should they occur. Additionally, for diseases where many options for care exist, including prevention, drug therapy, non-surgical intervention and surgery, your physician has more care choices. As a result, you are better assured that the procedure recommended is the best one for you. This access to a full range of care options is important to your health.
