Quality & Safety

Bridgeport Hospital strives to keep patients and visitors informed and involved in their healthcare decisions. We believe that, as consumers of health care, members of the community have a right to know about our hospital's quality of care and how it compares to state and national performance goals. That is why we publish our quality scores online.
