A commitment to excellence in clinical service

As we continue to grow our public-private partnership model, the successful delivery of vital health services to our community is not defined by the impressiveness of a building, but by the quality of the systems and dedicated professionals which function within. Thank you to our faculty physicians and residents who, through your diligence and commitment to excellence in clinical service, contribute to achievements in quality improvement outcomes for our patients. The Medical Executive Committee (MEC) is committed to Performance Improvement efforts to achieve greater efficiencies in patient throughput and key reductions in surgical site infections. The MEC also continues to support the active and constructive engagement of hospital and academic institutional leadership in ensuring a safe work space for students, residents and faculty physicians. Our success will remain defined by everyone's active engagement. We welcome and seek your input through your MEC representatives to ensure success in this endeavor.
