Quality care at RWJBarnabas Health

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

These days, most health care providers claim to provide "quality health care." At RWJBarnabas Health, we strive daily to provide quality care that’s better. Sure, we have been recognized for clinical excellence, extraordinary patient care and superior outcomes, but we believe improvement is always necessary to deliver the care our patients deserve. Attaining quality is not enough—we want to be better.

To guide these efforts, we built a framework to ensure patient experiences are consistent with our best practices. We regularly educate each team member on how to apply these standards so you and your family receive the highest level of care—even in the smallest details.

These are a few areas we’re focused on:

  • Meeting and Exceeding Industry Standards: Our institutional policies and procedures comply with—and often exceed—all necessary laws and generally accepted medical standards.
  • Safe Care: We maintain stringent systems for appropriate care and medical accuracy, and drive patient safety through the use of proven protocols.
  • Clinical Excellence: We analyze and advance our care repeatedly to ensure that we are using the best possible methodologies.
  • Clinical Resource Management: We manage resources to deliver care effectively and efficiently.
  • Respectful Care: Respecting an individual’s and family’s values and customs allows us to honor their needs and choices.
