Inspiring Quality: Leading the Way to Improve Care

Improving the quality of surgical care leads to greater access for patients, fewer complications, and better outcomes, thus lowering the cost of care. For nearly a century the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has implemented leading quality improvement programs for cancer and trauma care, breast care, bariatric surgical care, and overall surgical quality improvement.

The ACS Inspiring Quality initiative is intended to raise awareness of these programs and of other innovative programs in hospitals across the country. By working together with health care leaders around the nation, we will continue to have a significant impact on improving care and will help lead our health care system in the right direction.
