Vision for UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Health System
UT Southwestern Medical Center is the premier tertiary healthcare provider in the region. Our physicians are regionally and nationally recognized as experts and innovators in their fields. Working together in integrated, multi-disciplinary programs, they provide the highest quality of patient-centered care and advance health through clinical discovery and education.
Mission of the Hospitals
Our first priority is always safe, excellent care for our patients .
To meet our mission, we set specific targets for:
patient and staff satisfaction
Safety Initiatives for 2009
For year 2009, our safety priorities are:
Reduce the number of codes outside the ICU
Reduction in cases of ventilator-associated pneumonia
Reduce infections associated with central line use
Reduce “pressure ulcers”
Reduce falls, especially those resulting in injury
One Key Tool for 2009
We’ll be using a “failure mode and effect analysis” to minimize the risk of complications from central line utilization. This performance improvement team is now focused on protocols for the selection, use and discontinuation of central lines.
