UH Institute for Quality and Healthcare Innovation Committed to Quality and Patient Safety

University Hospitals’ Commitment To Quality and Patient Safety Is the Top Priority

2012 American Hospital Association-McKesson Quest for Quality Prize

Delivering on our mission, To Heal. To Teach. To Discover. requires a continuous and on-going commitment to excellence. As an innovative integrated delivery system, UH offers patients the latest and best technology and treatment methods. By pursuing the newest and best technologies, hiring and retaining highly skilled staff, and promoting a culture of safety and excellence, UH has forged an impressive quality record.

At UH, we understand that when patients make decisions about their health care, one of the most important decisions of all, they want reliable, standardized information about performance and quality of the services they are seeking. UH participates in a variety of initiatives intended to help consumers and employers compare health care providers and facilities.

The purpose of the University Hospitals Institute for Health Care Quality & Innovation website is to share the results of our ongoing efforts to provide safe, effective, patient centered, timely, efficient and equitable care to our patients and families. We provide information about our quality awards, patient safety, and quality measures in this section. Through our quality data, we are pleased to provide documentation of the top-notch care we provide.
