Quality & Patient Safety

Patient Safety Goals

Delivering personalized care with leading-edge technology is what we do every day at Community Hospital. But how well we fulfill that entrusted charge is measured largely by our ongoing, widespread assessments of quality of care and patient safety. Community Hospital's Patient Safety Goals.

Below are some hospital safety resources:
  • Hospital Compare - Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA) now provides on it's website Hospital Compare information about patients’ experience of care at our hospital. The HQA is a national public-private collaboration of hospital groups, consumer representatives, physician and nursing organizations, employers and payers, oversight organizations and government agencies dedicated to encouraging hospitals to voluntarily collect and make public quality of care information. The goal of the HQA’s Hospital Compare website is to give consumers a broad look at the quality of hospital care.

  • The National Patient Safety Foundation - An independent not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has been diligently pursuing one mission since it was founded in 1997 - to improve the safety of patients.

  • The Colorado Hospital Report Card - A statewide hospital data and clinical outcome report that is available to the general public. The Colorado Hospital Report Card utilizes standardized quality and clinical outcome measures that are endorsed by national organizations, with established standards to measure the performance of health care providers and hospitals.

We are the only hospital in the western United States to be accredited through both the Joint Commission and the American Osteopathic Association.
