Quality & Safety

Quality & Safety

At St. Mary Medical Center, ensuring high-quality, safe patient care is the number one priority. We are committed to providing the highest quality of care and safety to our community and we establish our clinical standards to be in full compliance with all applicable quality and patient safety regulations.

Where We Stand at St. Mary

St. Mary is accredited by the Joint Commission, the leading healthcare organization focused on improving the quality and safety of care at hospitals nationwide.

We continuously benchmark our quality and service performance against both national and state hospital indicators to ensure that we provide the highest quality of care and safety to our community. These indicators are developed by organizations that include the Joint Commission, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council, HealthGrades, Solucient, the Institute for Health Improvement and Leapfrog.

In addition, to improve care and performance outcomes, we proactively initiate new process improvements and vigilantly adopt the highest standards and best practices.

We recognize that members of the community may view quality and safety as an experience that is intregal to patient satisfaction. Patients expect freedom from accidental injury due to medical care or medical error. Therefore, St. Mary provides our emergency patients, inpatients and outpatients with a total quality and safety experience that encompasses diagnosis, treatment, education, prevention and support - caring for the whole person in mind, body and spirit.

Our St. Mary family - physicians, nurses, colleagues and volunteers - embodies our tradition of providing safe, quality care.
