Sharing outcomes so you can make informed decisions

Choosing where to bring your child for neurosurgery is a major decision. You need all the information you can get, in a way you can understand.

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 neurosurgery outcomes at Children’s Minnesota are outstanding.

The categories are ones chosen by the Institute of Medicine as good measures of health care quality. See how Children’s ranks on six quality of care measures. Learn more.
