Improving Quality, Saving Lives.

All Michigan hospitals and thousands of their team members are voluntarily participating in MHA programs to improve the safety and quality of healthcare. A growing number of hospitals in other states are now part of the MHA-lead patient safety and quality initiatives.

As a result of these initiatives, which are driven by evidence-based, best practices, and strongly supported by data, engaged hospitals are seeing great improvements on safety and quality outcomes. The MHA Keystone Center’s mission, vision, and values are an essential part of the work being done, and demonstrate their engagement to improving Michigan hospitals.
