For more than 100 years, quality has been the cornerstone of the American College of Surgeons. As the preeminent voice on surgical quality in healthcare, we set the highest quality standards for surgeons and hospitals alike—and then work to exceed them. We are excited to launch a new campaign that elevates the importance of delivering quality surgical care for every patient in every community.
Our goal is for ACS Quality Programs to be the standard for determining quality across
our country’s healthcare systems. With this aim in mind, we seek to bring an ACS Quality Program to every hospital and patient in America.
Providing high-quality care is at the heart of everything we do as surgeons, and it has been the cornerstone of the ACS since our founding in 1913. Today, it’s more important than ever that we accelerate conversations about surgical quality as we emerge from the pandemic and confront the strains it has put on our healthcare system, superimposed on existing burdens placed on us as physicians.
ACS Quality Programs are the definitive measure of a hospital’s surgical quality. Grounded in a century of experience, our programs have measurably improved quality of care, prevented complications, reduced costs—and saved lives.
Improving surgical care quality is crucial to ensuring better outcomes for patients. That’s why we’re working to bring ACS Quality Programs to every hospital and patient in America.
