St. Joseph Health, Humboldt County - Patient Safety Awards


Dear Neighbor,

This week marks National Patient Safety Week, an annual education and awareness campaign for healthcare safety led by the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF). In appreciation of this week and our own dedication to our patients, we wanted to take the opportunity to share with you the many ways we ensure that our patients receive the highest level of safe, quality patient care each and every day.

The health and safety of our patients is our top priority. At St. Joseph Health-Humboldt County, we not only meet or exceed the guidelines set forth by our state and national healthcare laws, we work together with our valued caregivers to identify and create additional programs and policies that further support patient safety and the reduction of harm.

In addition, St. Joseph Hospital and Redwood Memorial also regularly undergo objective third- party reviews of our patient safety procedures. These reviews are voluntary and ensure that we maintain the highest level of patient safety when providing care to the communities we are privileged to serve.

Lastly, we wouldn’t be able to provide the exceptional level of care our patients have come to expect without a team of dedicated caregivers. We are all patients, and we stand together on this important issue. We couldn’t be more proud of our caregivers, and it is because of their efforts that we have been privileged to receive numerous patient safety awards and recognitions that are a testament to their commitment and compassion for their profession:

St. Joseph Hospital

  • The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for hospital, home infusion and laboratory services (2016)
  • 5-Star Overall Quality of Care Award by Professional Research Consultants, Inc. - Radiation Oncology and North Coast Surgery Center (2016)
  • Accredited as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Center by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer

Redwood Memorial

  • The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for critical access hospital and laboratory services (2016)
  • Becker Hospital Review’s “11 Hospitals with Great Customer Service” providing excellent customer service and quality patient care (2016)
  • 4-Star Overall Quality of Care Award by Professional Research Consultants, Inc. – Inpatient Service (2016)

Thank you for entrusting us with your care. We are honored to provide care to the people of our community, and we look forward to providing our patients with the safest care for many years to come.
