Quality care in a patient-centered environment.
The Digestive Disorders Center at Griffin is committed to ensuring a safe environment for our patients, visitors, and staff. As part of our hospital-wide culture of safety, our goal is to provide patient-centered, safe, equitable, timely, effective, and efficient care. We encourage our patients (and their family members) to ask questions about their treatment and to be actively involved in their care and safety.
In 2008, the Digestive Disorders Center nurses were named “New England's Best Nursing Team” by ADVANCE for Nurses, the biweekly magazine of the nursing profession. The staff is very involved in promoting colon cancer screenings and cancer prevention through community outreach, which was a factor in the staff also being recognized as Griffin Hospital's Department of the Year in 2007.
Tops in Patient Satisfaction
The Digestive Disorders Center has consistently ranked very high in patient satisfaction. In the past three years, roughly 97% of The Center’s patients said they were very satisfied with their treatment.
