Quality & Safety Report

At Meridian, we feel that the community should have access to information about their local hospital’s quality and safety, believing that information sharing among hospitals leads to exceptional hospital quality and safety across New Jersey. And the more information on a hospital’s performance, the more a patient can make informed health care decisions.

Through these reports, you can see how Meridian’s hospitals perform in key clinical areas that reflect a hospital’s overall quality and safety.

While we are encouraged by our results, we believe that quality and safety of clinical care is a journey, not a destination. And so we work continuously to analyze and improve our performance. It is through the effective collaboration between our physicians and staff that we are able to continually improve the care we provide our patients.

And so, we welcome you to visit these resources regularly to see our continued improvement, and use these resources as one tool to make decisions and discuss with your physician.
