The Power of Quality

Quality has been the cornerstone of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) since its founding 110 years ago. Through the Power of Quality Campaign, the ACS is on a mission to improve surgical quality and patient care across the country. We will expand the reach of ACS Quality Programs to more hospitals, enlist more surgeons in quality improvement efforts, encourage adoption of quality metrics into public policy, and help patients seek out hospitals committed to delivering the highest quality of care.

For Hospitals

ACS Quality Programs demonstrate a hospital's dedication to providing surgical teams with the tools and resources they need to put quality at the forefront and help them do what they do best—save and improve lives. Partner with us to begin or enhance quality programs.
