Quality and Accreditations
Southern Regional is committed to providing our patients and community
members with published statistical information about clinical processes
at our hospital. We believe that well-informed patients will take a more
active role in improving their health condition.
A leading trend in healthcare includes the effort to increase consumer
knowledge about hospitals and healthcare organizations in order to aid
consumers in making more well-informed healthcare decisions. Southern
Regional supports this effort and is pleased to provide these reports
noting Southern Regional's performance on a number of nationally recognized
quality indicators and practices.
