At SVMC, we take patient safety seriously. Accredited by The Joint Commission, the Commission on Cancer, and the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program, we seek to enhance the patient experience and ensure safety and quality every day. In addition, two of our team members are Certified Professionals in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ).
While it takes a lot of effort to maintain these accreditation and certifications, the effort is paying off. Medicare’s Value Based Purchasing Program consistently ranks SVMC among the top hospitals in the country for patient satisfaction, quality, safety, and value. The most recent ranking gave us the highest score of any hospital in Northern New England and placed us in the top four percent of hospitals nationwide.
Professionals from many different areas work together to keep patients safe from infections, falls and complications associated with healthcare. We track our progress to ensure the safest experience possible for every patient.
