Continuously working to improve patient care

Seattle Children's Hospital is committed to improving the lives of the patients and families we serve and providing a productive work environment for our people. For more than a decade, the organization has applied a transformative philosophy called continuous performance improvement (CPI) to identify, test and implement improvements across the organization to ensure safety and quality and the best care.

The following fact sheets and videos highlight several ways we've used CPI to achieve important results.
