New data shows that hospital deaths continue to decrease across the country.

  • Out of 83 reporting facilities in Canada (outside Quebec), 47 have significantly improved on this measure over the last 5 years.
  • For patients who die in Canadian hospitals, the 6 leading causes of death are stroke, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, sepsis and heart attack.

Updated results for the indicator Hospital Deaths (also known as HSMR, for “hospital standardized mortality ratio”) are available on CIHI’s Your Health System web tool.
