What We Believe
The NorMet Patient Safety Institute is a means of furthering the commitment of nearly 27 member hospitals in the seven-county lower Hudson Valley region of New York State to provide the highest quality and safest care to the over 2.3 million people who live and work in the region.
The NorMet PSO seeks to further develop a culture of safety in its member hospitals and to identify important care processes, interventions and best practices to transform the hospitals into the safest in the nation. The NorMet Patient Safety Institute offers hospitals, citizens and the state the unique opportunity to more rapidly ascertain and affect and ascertain improvements in care, dramatically shortening the current national estimate of more than a decade needed for adoption of new clinical best practices. This improvement will be in discrete focused initiatives, one at a time, but throughout a seven county region that serves millions of New Yorkers.
The Institute’s vision is to become the premier hospital quality organization for the region and a leader in quality and efficiency improvement for hospitals across New York State and the Nation.
