Improving Quality, Saving Lives.

15 Years of Safe Care logoAll Michigan hospitals and thousands of their team members—from direct healthcare providers such as nurses and doctors to front-office executives—are now voluntarily participating in Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) programs to improve the safety and quality of healthcare. A growing number of hospitals in other states also are now part of the MHA-lead patient safety and quality initiatives.

The MHA Keystone Center brings together hospitals, and state and national patient safety experts to collect and report data, and implement evidence-based, best practices to improve patient safety and reduce healthcare costs in Michigan and beyond.

Our Mission

Supporting healthcare providers to achieve excellence in the outcomes desired by the people they serve.

Our Vision

Achieving the highest quality healthcare outcomes that meet individual values.
