Clinical Quality at St. Joseph's Hospitals
Our strategy is to continuously focus on clinical excellence ensuring each and every patient receives the absolute best care and outcomes possible. Each day we continue to pioneer clinical excellence through innovative learning, continuous process improvement and most importantly patient safety. In caring for hundreds of thousands of patients and families each year, we recognize that our patients, families, communities, and stakeholders may describe excellent care and quality outcomes in unique and personal ways. We at BayCare understand this uniqueness and value all perspectives on quality care. Supporting agencies such as CMS Hospital Compare, Leapfrog, CareChex, IBM/Watson Top Hospitals and Health Systems, US News and World Report, Health Grades, and others each bring a unique quality measurement approach to the industry as well. As such, we respect each of these efforts and would like to share some of our quality outcomes from these reports.
