Meridian’s Quality & Safety

Meridian Health’s vision and commitment to achieving a culture of quality and safety is what distinguishes our organization as a premier health care provider in New Jersey. It is our absolute and continuing commitment to providing quality, safe patient care at our hospitals and partner companies.

The goal of quality and safety reporting is to ensure that patients, when they seek care, receive the right treatment, test, or medicine, at the right time, depending on each patient’s specific condition. Improving patient care by focusing on key quality and safety indicators is integral to achieving Meridian’s overall quality and safety objectives. It is an interdisciplinary, multi-party effort, one that encompasses the entire organization – including physicians, nurses, support staff, administration personnel, and board members – all working in partnership to improve the quality and safety of patient care.

  • We support data and information sharing among hospitals, and believe it is a critical approach toward providing all patients the very best care.
  • Consumers should use these reports as one tool to help them ask more precise questions of their doctors and hospitals.
  • We are fortunate to have highly competent physicians serving on our medical staff who embrace evidence-based medicine, and who are equally dedicated to delivering a consistent high level of care.
  • We believe that quality and safe patient care is a journey, not a destination. For us, it’s about supporting a culture of quality and safety improvement that continues to grow, where as soon as we reach one goal, we see another goal on the horizon to work toward.
