What You Need to Know

The graph shows how Sentara hospitals perform overall for some of the standards of care provided to someone who experiences heart failure.  

  Higher percentages are better
  Compare to U.S. Average or Top 10 percent in U.S.
  Small differences in numbers or percentages may not be significant due to differences in total patient volumes between hospitals 

The quality measures below are part of a national initiative by the United States Department of Health and Human Services and other organizations. See these measures for other hospitals by going to HospitalCompare.
