Quality and Safety

At Children’s Hospital, our approach to providing quality care is not only multidisciplinary, but multifaceted. Learn about how we prevent hospital-acquired conditions, work with patients to ensure successful management of issues related to population health, and meet the needs of some of our most vulnerable patients through our specialty programs.

If you have kids, be glad you have Children’s.
