Sacramento Business Journal

Catholic Healthcare West, which operates 41 hospitals in California, Arizona and Nevada, said Monday it’s saved 991 lives and reduced costs $36.5 million over three years by investing in a severe sepsis prevention effort. But like virtually all hospital systems nationwide, it still has a long way to go to reduce the huge toll of illness and death caused by severe sepsis. The infections kill an estimated 210,000 annually in North America alone.
