PHC4 Hospital Outcomes Report:

Information to Help Pennsylvanians Become Educated Health Care Consumers

 The Trustees of the Central Pennsylvania Teamsters Health & Welfare Fund (“Fund”) believe that it is each person’s responsibility to become knowledgeable about his or her medical conditions, the available treatments and the physicians and hospitals providing treatment for these conditions.  There are many sources of information, including those that can be accessed through the Internet.  The Trustees urge you to review the information you gather critically and carefully.

 The Fund’s website offers links to a number of websites that can offer general information. The PHC4 link will provide you with access to reports developed by the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council, an independent state agency responsible for addressing the problem of escalating health costs, ensuring the quality of health care, and increasing access for all citizens regardless of ability to pay.  The PHC4 reports rank hospitals and providers on the outcomes of several kinds of procedures.  The information given by these web sites is general information and not medical advice and is not intended as a substitute for medical care provided by a physician.  In addition, no information in the PHC4 report is intended to encourage or discourage a patient from receiving services from any particular physician or hospital.  Because of that, the Trustees and the Fund assume no responsibility for any decision you may make arising out of the use, misuse, interpretation or application of any information or other material provided on this site.
