Early last month, our Norwegian member Haraldsplass Diakonale Sykehus (Haraldsplass Diaconal Hospital) was recognized as the hospital with the best survival profile in Norway by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.

The findings, published on the Report on Survival and Rehabilitation in Norwegian Hospitals, relate to all diagnostic groups, and shows a survival rate of 96.2% 30 days after hospitalization in 2016.

The results obtained by Haraldsplass Diakonale Sykehus in this context are encouraging, especially considering that the scientific community commonly regards the short-term (30-day) postoperative survival as the most proximate measure of the skill of the surgeon and quality of the hospital.
