The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has designated Trinity Health an ACS Surgical Quality Partner in recognition of its commitment to maintain the highest standards in surgical care.
The ACS created its Surgical Quality Partner designation to help patients make informed choices when it comes to accessing care.
“Being a Surgical Quality Partner signifies an institution’s dedication to consistently improve procedures and approaches while maintaining a critical eye on process at every step,” the ACS stated in a letter announcing Trinity’s recognition.
Hospitals in North America that participate in at least one of the 13 ACS Quality Programs earn recognition as an ACS Surgical Quality Partner. Trinity Health has participated in ACS’ Commission on Cancer Accreditation Program, receiving initial accreditation for its cancer program and subsequent reapprovals.
“Designation as an ACS Surgical Quality Partner is an honor that signifies the expertise and professionalism of our entire care team,” said Shane Jordan, CMD, director of Trinity’s CancerCare Center. “It reflects our proven record of adhering to the safest and most effective surgical standards to minimize complications and improve outcomes.”
Surgical Quality Partners are encouraged to share their status with patients and display the Surgical Quality Partner Diamond in their hospitals and on their websites.
