Our Commitment to Quality
Partners HealthCare is committed to making patient care better each day, across all parts of our system. We were one of the first health care systems to publicly report on the quality of care provided at our institutions and continue to do so on this website. Here you can learn about some of the many ways Partners is working to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care and how we are performing against these goals.
At Partners we take pride in having world-class facilities and personnel, and in making sure that delivery of care anywhere in the system is uniformly high quality, safe, and cost effective. Partners has programs in place that specifically address areas where improvement in performance is needed.
We hope patients and others with an interest in health care quality find this site useful to assess the overall quality of care delivered in our hospitals. However, patients should also talk openly with their caregivers to learn more about what quality care means to them as an individual. We believe in patient-centered care, that is, taking into account what it is a patient views as important in his or her health care.

At Partners HealthCare, data and knowledge gained through pilot projects, research, and process improvement are shared across our hospitals.
Providing high quality, affordable care is something about which we are passionate. Partners has made significant efforts in recent years to reduce the cost of care without compromising on the quality of that care.
Partners Hospitals are recognized each year by a number of organizations for high performance.
