Our Commitment to Quality

 
 

Our mission is to deliver safe, cost-effective care to the community and patients we serve.  The goal of our Commitment to Quality is to enhance the overall quality our services and to provide our patients and community with objective information about our performance.  We monitor and measure our performance against national standards.

Since 2004, Des Peres Hospital has participated in national efforts to promote public reporting on hospital quality of care.

The federal web site “Medicare Hospital Compare” (www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare) is intended to help patients make informed choices when selecting a hospital based on quality indicators.

Des Peres Hospital also shares our performance data with The Leapfrog Group.  The Leapfrog Hospital Survey assesses hospital safety and quality based on national performance measures (www.hospitalsafetyscore.org).

Insurance providers and other health organizations have recognized Des Peres Hospital for meeting rigorous quality criteria based on nationally recognized medical standards.  For a complete listing of our awards and recognition, visit our awards and recognition page.
