Quality of Care

Our mission at KVH is to provide a system of high quality healthcare that meets community needs through excellent patient and family centered service. We report and evaluate the care we provide every day through the use of established indicators and benchmarks. We are always looking for opportunities to deliver healthcare more effectively, efficiently, and safely.

Quality care indicators measure our performance against national standards of care for treatment of patients diagnosed with heart attacks, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, and against evidence-based standards of practice for reducing the risks of surgical infection.

This section of the website provides reports on how KVH is working hard to improve quality and safety of care we provide. You can also visit the official U.S. Government Site for Medicare at www.medicare.gov/hospitalcompare or the Washington State Hospital Association website www.wahospitalquality.org to view these results and the results of other hospitals.
