Patient Safety

Unity Health System is committed to your safety every time we care for you. We want you to know that it's not only our doctors and nurses who are working to keep you safe, it's also our technicians and diet clerks; our board members and hospital executives. It's our transporters, housekeepers and volunteers. In fact, everyone plays a role. Even you.

Speak Up!
You, as the patient, can play a vital role in making your care safe by becoming an active, involved, and informed member of your health care team. After all, research shows that patients who take part in decisions about their health care are more likely to have better outcomes.
