At Washington Hospital, we believe quality is everyone’s responsibility. We dedicate ourselves to working together to build and sustain a culture of safety and accountability with one goal in mind: continuously improving outcomes for our patients and our community. This dedication to quality is driven by one of Washington Hospital’s guiding principles: the Patient First Ethic.
To support the organization’s quality efforts, Washington Hospital has an entire department dedicated to quality, aptly named the Quality Department. This Department is responsible for overseeing the Hospital’s performance activities by working with staff and physicians to assure the quality of care delivered to patients meets or exceeds regulatory and best practices.
Washington Hospital is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care in the safest possible environment for every patient. As part of its emphasis on quality, the Hospital is proud to release its 2011-2012 Annual Report to the Community. In this report, you will find information on how Washington Hospital has worked to address a wide range of quality-related issues focused on delivering better patient care. The report also contains data illustrating Washington Hospital’s success in meeting and exceeding a set of standardized Core Performance Measures set by the Joint Commission, the nation’s leading hospital accreditation entity. Please note that the 2012 Quality Report has been merged into the 2012 Annual Report.

The most important part of your health care team
Washington Hospital believes that the patient has a huge role in his or her health care. Our "Please Ask" campaign educates patients to ask questions of the staff if they do not understand something about their care including their medications. By asking questions and being informed, patients help improve their own outcomes. We appreciate feedback from our patients and community. Click here to download the Please Ask brochure.
