We believe it's important for patients and families to know about the quality of care in any organization before making a decision about where to go for treatment.
We monitor the quality of our care continually and use this information to guide our quality improvement efforts. We set our standards of care according to those recommended by well-respected institutions that have based their recommendations on scientific evidence and research.
In order to make this information available to you, we voluntarily participate in state and national projects that use advances in information technology to display organizational data on their websites.
Below are several websites that display information about the quality of our care and safety initiatives, with comparison data from other organizations that offer similar services and are of similar size to Craig General Hospital.
