The Laurens County Health Care System (LCHCS) is committed to providing high-quality health care services that are essential to the community we serve. Quality service and technical competence are the norm. What separates us from others is the way we care for our patients and each other.
We track quality measures and compare them to national and state numbers. We are proud to share our quality measures with you.
LCHCS’s goal for quality and performance improvement is to achieve excellence in clinical care as measured by evidence-based, nationally endorsed clinical indicators and patient safety practices. We strive not to meet but exceed the standards of care set by federal, state and local agencies.
Our approach toward performance improvement includes the collaborative efforts of physicians, nurses, ancillary support staff, volunteer members, as well as administrative members. We continuously measure and assess our performance to provide excellent care and service that meet the highest standards.
Click on Patient Satisfaction Survey Results to see a sampling of what patients had to say about the care they received after being admitted to LCHCS. This national standardized survey is referred to as HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems). For comparative measures, we have included the most recent national and state data, provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
