Quality & Patient Safety

The Colorado Hospital Association (CHA) is committed to improving the quality of care and the safety of patients in hospitals and health systems across the state. CHA works collaboratively with member hospitals and health systems by offering educational opportunities, technical support and guidance on a variety of evidence-based initiatives that both expand the quality of care and advance leadership's commitment to patient safety.  

 | Together, CHA is creating a culture of safety throughout Colorado.

Look for the CALL TO ACTION throughout the CHA site for ways you can help promote patient safety and quality at your hospital.
