Quality and Patient Safety

St. Louise Regional Hospital strives to provide the safest and highest quality care to our patients, their families, and our community in a manner consistent with our values. Our care plans and processes are built on evidence-based practices, and we hold ourselves to the highest standards.

We seek to provide care that is safe, patient centered, effective, timely, efficient, and equitable. We measure our performance through a number of clinical process and outcome indicators and benchmark our performance against top performing medical centers within California and across the nation.

Dedicated to achieving excellent quality outcomes and to building a culture of patient safety, St. Louise Regional Hospital has partnered with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Premier in the Partnership for Patients Initiative to improve the quality, safety and affordability of health care for all Americans.
