Quality and Safety

Cape Cod Healthcare’s mission is to provide the best quality care to our patients, as directed by the needs of our community. This mission is top of mind in all that we do, focusing our quality and safety efforts on initiatives that most strongly impact areas that affect the population of the Cape.

Our hospitals are committed to process improvement as the primary motivator for changing culture, quality and safety. Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital have continually improved in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ public reporting system, with Cape Cod Hospital achieving a “5-star” rating for the first time in its history this year. This is a feat that has only been accomplished by a handful of hospital nationwide. Falmouth Hospital also performed very well, with a “4-star” rating.
