Memorial Health System Recognized as Surgical Quality Partner by American College of Surgeons

Thursday, October 5th, 2023

Memorial Health System (MHS) is proud to announce recent recognition by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) as a Surgical Quality Partner

Being a Surgical Quality Partner signifies Memorial Health System’s dedication to consistently improving procedures and approaches, all while maintaining a critical eye on the process at every step. It demonstrates that MHS has improved the quality of care, prevented complications, reduced costs, and saved lives.

A Surgical Quality Partner designation lets patients know that Memorial Health System is dedicated to quality and relentless self-improvement and that they have been verified or accredited by the ACS. Patients can trust that the care they receive at Surgical Quality Partner hospitals, such as Memorial Health System, adheres to the most rigorous standards in surgical quality, and that the providers and support staff within the system are committed to maintaining, evaluating, and improving surgical care.

“ACS Quality programs are grounded in more than a century of experience and participation is an important measure of a hospital’s surgical quality. As an ACS Surgical Quality Partner, Memorial Health System has shown a commitment to providing the best possible patient care, evaluating that care in a rigorous fashion, and dedicating themselves to continuous self-improvement,” says ACS Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Patricia L. Turner, MD, MBA, FACS.

The American College of Surgeons is a scientific and educational organization of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to raise the standards of surgical practice and improve the quality of care for all surgical patients. The College is dedicated to the ethical and competent practice of surgery. Its achievements have significantly influenced the course of scientific surgery in America and have established it as an important advocate for all surgical patients.
