Health Care Quality

Everyone Deserves Quality Health Care!

October 2008 - Health Reform Vigil

Quality in the delivery of health care is an issue that is extremely important to patients and their family members.

  • CHC believes that the quality problems that arise in the health care system are not usually the fault of any single person or hospital. That is why we stress a collaborative approach between patients, doctors, nurses, hospitals, and insurers to solve the problems.
