Quality and Safety Performance

Welcome to the Quality and Safety section of the Danbury Hospital website. As a hospital that is part of a larger integrated health system, we believe our most important responsibilities involve our quality of care and the safety of our patients.

Quality and Safety of Danbury Hospital 

To meet our goals of quality and safety, we follow national best practices, from technology to teamwork, to deliver the finest care possible. We truly value our patients and promise to treat all who come through our doors with dignity and respect. We also commit to a culture of High Reliability, where we focus on ensuring we are providing care in an environment of relentless attention to safety and continuous learning.

Hospitals throughout the U.S. measure and report on certain statistics related to the care they deliver. These reports help guide hospitals' ongoing quality improvement efforts by highlighting areas where they perform well or have opportunity for improvement. Because you deserve to know how we are doing, we openly provide our performance measures on this website. This is our Safe Care Promise to you.

How Danbury Hospital achieves our results in quality and safety involves some key principles. Our Board of Directors demands it. Our entire organization is committed to it. We spend a lot of time on it. We measure our performance constantly and hold ourselves accountable. We have an excellent and well-trained staff. And we continue to seek and implement best practices that ensure great outcomes.

The best hospitals are the ones who keep striving toward excellence in all they do. As we continue our quality improvement efforts, we invite and welcome your comments and suggestions. Thank you for putting your confidence in our care.
