Quality Initiatives

Patient safety is the cornerstone of quality care at Walla Walla General Hospital. Ensuring patient safety requires a culture of safety where the organization avoids assigning blame to individuals while encouraging accountability. Creating a “culture of safety” begins by building a network of systems, processes, and an awareness of quality throughout the organization. It is the philosophy of this organization that quality, and therefore safety, is everyone’s responsibility and must be a collaborative effort.

We use several national benchmarking studies and participate in national and statewide as well as system-wide initiatives to ensure the quality of our patient care remains extraordinary.
