Quality and Safety
St. Luke’s is committed to providing quality care based on the Institute of Medicine’s definition: safe, timely, efficient, effective, equitable, accessible, and patient-centered.
By following the best, most current medical evidence, measuring and analyzing our data, and constantly improving our practices based on the data, we work toward the best possible outcome for each patient who comes through our doors.

Culture of Safety
In addition to analyzing our patient outcomes data, we survey our hospital staff and physicians to measure different aspects of our patient safety culture. Their responses help us proactively prevent patient harm.
A safety culture is shaped by hospital policies and practices, as well as the values and personalities of people in the organization. It's a collection of attitudes, behaviors, and trust that, with assessment and improvement, can ensure everyone at our hospitals delivers safety for our patients.
