At Novant Health Prince William Medical Center, our first priority is to provide the highest quality of care to patients and their families. Learn more about some of the national initiatives to publicly compare healthcare services as well as some of our efforts to continuously improve the quality of patient care.
One of the best ways to rate healthcare quality is through data collected by an independent source. We voluntarily participate in programs to measure our performance and compare with other hospitals throughout the nation. As quality initiatives continue to evolve and standardize, we will continue taking steps to ensure that we participate in programs that bring the most important information to our community.
We support the nationwide effort to ensure that patients coming into the hospital with specific conditions receive recommended care. These recommendations are based on years of research on interventions that have been proven to improve outcomes for these conditions.
We believe the best way to compare hospital outcome data is by using reliable, national organizations that measure quality among U.S. hospitals in a standardized way. Novant Health voluntarily submits cardiac surgical procedure data and cardiac catheterization data to a number of nationally-recognized data registries.
We are proud to be a Joint Commission-accredited healthcare organization. The Joint Commission is a public advocacy organization that supports patient safety and quality of care.
Certifications: Our national certifications recognize our exceptional efforts to provide the best care to our patients.
Patient Satisfaction: Quality goes beyond measuring clinical care. Recognizing this, we ask our patients how they feel about the service they receive.
Awards and Recognition: We are proud to be recognized as a leader in improving the quality of healthcare by many national independent organizations.
How Are We Doing: We want to hear your feedback because we are committed to providing the best care and service possible.
