Hospital Performance

Hospital performance can be viewed individually and peer-to-peer. Peer-to-peer data allows hospitals to view their performance as it compares to birth hospitals with similar level of care. Hospitals can view their individual performance in average transit time (goal: within three days) and target acceptance percentage (goal: 95%). The peer groups were based on the Arizona Perinatal Trust Certification Levels of Care.

  • Level I – Low risk OB patients; basic newborn care
  • Level II – Selected high risk OB patients; continuing care for newborns 32 weeks or greater
  • Level IIE – High risk OB patients; continuing care for newborns 28 weeks or greater
  • Level III – All OB and newborn patients, including those requiring subspecialty and intensive care at all gestational levels.

You can access the individual hospital data for each category and peer-to-peer performance using the links below:
