Gastroenterology and Hepatology
Statistics and Outcomes
We treat the entire range of childhood and young adult conditions related to the liver and gastrointestinal system – including rare and complex diseases. We bring years of experience to your child’s unique situation.
Seattle Children’s Gastroenterology and Hepatology Program is the largest such program in the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI) region.
Many families consider national rankings in choosing medical care for their children. In 2018, U.S. News & World Report ranked Seattle Children’s Gastroenterology and Hepatology Program #1 in the Northwest, and among the best nationally.
"Outcomes” refer to the results of treatment and evaluate how effective care is. We also provide statistics such as the number of patients seen (volumes).
We gather this data to:
- Measure the health of our patients
- Improve the quality of the care we provide
- Help you make informed decisions about your child’s care
