Exceptional outcomes in infant care
Choosing where to go for neonatal care is a major decision. You need all the information you can get; and you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.
That’s why we share our outcomes with you. In medicine, “outcomes” measure the end results of a treatment. They’re an objective way of gauging how good a hospital is at treating your child’s condition. As you’ll see, the neonatal program outcomes at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota are excellent.
Our numbers help show you how Children’s is delivering quality care. The categories are ones chosen by the Institute of Medicine as good measures of health care quality.
Grown-up micro preemies
Micro preemies are babies who are born very early and are very tiny. They’re born between week 23 and 29 of pregnancy and often weigh less than 3 pounds. Caring for them can be complicated, but Children’s achieves a higher survival rate than the Vermont Oxford Network (VON) average.
