The American College of Surgeons (ACS), on April 14, announced the launch of its new multi-year Power of Quality campaign aimed at improving care for all surgical patients by expanding its quality programs to more hospitals nationwide.

These evidence-based quality programs have been proved to improve patient outcomes, streamline hospital processes, and lower costs for surgical patients in participating hospitals.

ACS executive director and CEO, Patricia L. Turner, MD, MBA, FACS, notes that: “This is about much more than improving quality at a single hospital within a single specialty.” She says, it’s about improving quality across the entire healthcare system and working with hospitals and policy makers to support investments that allow surgeons to deliver critical, quality care and improve the health of all patients.
