This annual report begins with summaries of how different tools of measurement have a role in the following specialties: newborn special care unit, neurology, cardiology, radiation therapy, and anesthesiology. A shortage of qualified nurses led to a recruitment of 300 nurses and improvement to benefits. The increase to staff allowed for 65 beds to be reopened. The first successful heart-lung transplant in New England happened at YNHH in May. See report for new or expanded services. Facilities renewal program launched. Yale Physicians Building completed in February.
