Message from the VP, Clinical Quality Improvement

One of the keys to the success of any worthwhile endeavor we choose to undertake is our ability to measure our progress in achieving the objectives we have set for ourselves. Without this critical feedback, we cannot accurately judge whether our efforts are truly effective or not.

I'd like to tell you about the initiatives we have implemented to improve quality of care and patient safety at Hilton Head Hospital. On this web site you will see information on some of the programs and processes we have put in place to help us achieve our quality goals, and highlights some of the individuals who play a key role in these important efforts.

Hilton Head Hospital achieved an aggregate score of 97.8% in the CMS core measures reported by the federal government, which is above the national average of 97.6%.  I am proud of our performance and extremely appreciative of the dedicated staff and physicians whose hard work are behind this great score. The information contained in this document offers tangible evidence of the progress we are making toward accomplishing our No. 1 objective: ensuring that we consistently provide safe and effective care for every patient who seeks treatment at our hospital.

At Hilton Head Hospital, we are committed to providing each and every patient with quality care.

Sincerely,
Lori Ross, RN, BSN
VP, Clinical Quality Improvement
