Our Commitment to Quality, Safety, and Service — And Your Right to Know

As a Medical Center, no work is more important to us than earning the trust of our patients, their families, and the providers who refer them to us.

  • Our number one priority remains providing a safe, high-quality, patient- and family-centered care experience.
  • We strive to combine the best scientific evidence with expert clinical judgment, and to deliver truly compassionate care.
  • We are devoted to continual improvement in our efforts to provide the best and safest patient care possible.
  • We care about how patients and parents experience their care, and we won't be content until our patient experience is the best in the country.
  • Our leaders challenge us to constantly review our performance. This is the key to understanding what we are doing well - and where we still need to do better.

In the interest of transparency and accountability, this website is our way of sharing a clear and honest report with you. We hope it helps you make informed decisions about your health care.
