Quality & Safety               

Providing quality health care and ensuring patient safety are top priorities for hospitals in Florida. Through innovative and aggressive statewide quality initiatives, Florida hospitals are working to become a national model for high quality health care. 

Quality initiatives have successfully helped FHA hospitals achieve significant reductions in avoidable readmissions, lower infection rates and improve surgical care outcomes. 

Currently, FHA facilitates initatives to reduce patient harm, save lives and improve efficiencies in health care, including the FHA Mission to Care Hospital Improvement Innovation Network and  Patient Safety Organization, PSOFlorida.
