National Hospital Measures

The Joint Commission requires accredited hospitals to collect and submit performance data on Heart Attack, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and the Surgical Care Improvement Project. This requirement was established to improve the safety and quality of care and to support performance improvement in hospitals. PeaceHealth participates in this initiative not only to comply with the regulatory agencies, but also to demonstrate our commitment to exceptional medicine and compassionate care.
