Performance Measured in Black and White

Today as never before, information is available to help healthcare consumers gauge the quality of care provided by hospitals and to compare facilities based on consistent and objective criteria. These criteria are called core measures, established as standards of care by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

HCA Virginia is dedicated to providing the highest quality of healthcare to our patients—and our pursuit of excellence shows. View and compare our latest quality of care scores as reported by the CMS.
