University HealthSystem Consortium
As a national leader in medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital constantly strives to raise the bar of its own performance in all areas. One way the hospital does this is through its membership in the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), which affords the opportunity to compare its performance with other leading academic medical centers across the country and benchmark against best practices.
