Identifying the right healthcare provider for your needs
is an important decision. There are a number of sources
for comparing hospital quality. One source you may find
helpful is the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS). As an agency of the US Department of Health and
Human Services, CMS offers quality measures that
illustrate how often hospitals provide some of the
recommended care to get the best results for the most
patients. You can learn more by visiting www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov.
It is also reassuring to know that all Saint Francis
Health System entities are fully accredited by The Joint
Commission. We embrace the high standards of quality
required to attain this accreditation and maintain a
constant state of readiness for future visits from the
Joint Commission. You can find out more about the
accreditation process by visiting www.jointcommission.org.
In addition to our quality initiatives required to
maintain our Joint Commission accreditation, Saint
Francis Health System has a number of other quality
initiatives that we pursue to continue to provide our
patients with the highest quality of care possible. The
links below highlight some of our efforts.
