Hilton Head Regional Medical Center is participating in a new hospital quality measurement tool called Hospital Compare now available to our patients by the Hospital Quality Alliance.

 

This new web site www.HospitalCompare.hhs.gov is intended to help patients make informed choices about selecting a hospital based on quality indicators.  It marks a milestone of public accountability and a landmark of public-private partnership between hospitals like Hilton Head Regional, government agencies and other health organizations.

 

Hilton Head Regional Medical Center is committed to providing quality to the patients we treat.  We encourage you to learn more about the hospital quality initiatives to ensure your safety and care in the hospitals throughout the United States.

 

Hilton Head Regional Medical Center’s Commitment to Quality initiative is currently enhancing the overall quality, control and productivity of our care delivery process.  We have launched a series of targeted initiatives to bring about significant improvements in quality of care and patient safety, nursing practice, medical staff governance and other important areas related to patient care.  Commitment to Quality will further our mission to deliver safe, cost-effective care to the communities and patients we serve. 

 

Working together with our physician specialists and clinical staff we will build a solid foundation of proven medical excellence and quality care in our community.
