Length of stay rates, 2013–2016

• Length of stay is a statistic that measures how long a patient stays in the hospital.
• The length of stay at Randall Children’s Hospital after a pediatric heart surgery is shorter in each of the 10 major surgeries we perform than the national average.*
• In some surgeries, our length of stay is two weeks shorter than the national average.
