Count on high-quality care in a safe environment at Wayne UNC Health Care. Our team is on a journey to continuous improvement, incorporating evidence-based care, standard work processes and national patient safety guidelines designed to elevate the standard of care we provide.
Some of our key initiatives around quality care include:
Joint Commission Accreditation
Rest assured you’ll receive excellent care and treatment at Wayne UNC because The Joint Commission accredits our hospital and laboratory. That means our services and staff meet The Joint Commission’s national accreditation standards for quality of care and safety.
Patients and their family members are an important part of the care team at Wayne UNC. Patients contribute to the healing environment at Wayne UNC by being active participants in their health care.
Research shows that patients who make their voices heard are likely to get better more quickly. That’s why we support The Joint Commission’s Speak Up™ campaign [PDF] and encourage our patients to:
- Speak up
- Pay attention
- Educate themselves
- Bring advocates (family members and friends)
- Know about new medication
- Use a quality health care organization
- Participate in all decisions about their care
Patient Satisfaction Surveys
To improve our care, we take part in a program that compares our patient feedback to national data. Patient satisfaction surveys help us deliver compassionate, high-quality health care.
