Quality and Safety

Providing the best care has always been our priority at Pardee Hospital. We continue to achieve national benchmark performance throughout all areas of care in:

  • Clinical outcomes
  • Quality
  • Cost efficiency
  • Certification

Excellent outcomes for our patients are a result of continually improving every department, procedure and action we take.

A commitment to quality

Pardee is proud to have been the first hospital in the Carolinas to be accredited by ISO standards. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification is a rigorous process in which a hospital:

  • Improves and monitors the delivery of patient care
  • Measures quality
  • Places the highest priority on eliminating errors

ISO standards are globally known and considered the gold standard for all industries. The standards help Pardee provide consistent patient care, ensuring that operational processes lead to both expected and improved patient outcomes.
