Research & Care Quality

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health is nationally recognized for designing care processes around patients, increasing quality and reducing the cost of care.

Providing solutions through process improvement

One way Virginia Mason Franciscan Health advances its goals is through the Virginia Mason Institute, offering consulting, training, assessments and other services to health care executives, leaders, doctors and clinical staff, and non-health care leaders, with the goal of creating and sustaining a continuous improvement culture.

The Virginia Mason Production System is our systemwide program, in place since 2002, designed to change the way we deliver health care and, in the process, improve quality and patient safety

Research and clinical studies

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health partners with the Benaroya Research Institute to offer clinical studies to patients. Together we are leading the way in the discovery of innovative treatments and diagnostic tools for arthritis, cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other conditions in immunology, cardiology and urology.

Our commitment to quality care

We follow national guidelines to measure quality and ensure that we’re focused on the most important metrics. By monitoring our results, we can constantly improve our services—bringing the most advanced care from our expert staff to you and your family.
