  • Decrease preventable hospital acquired conditions by 40 percent
  • Decrease hospital readmissions by 20 percent   

There are 108 hospitals that have reached the goal on at least one hospital acquired condition. Of those, 72 have demonstrated high performance on three or more hospital acquired conditions.
