Virginia Mason Franciscan Health Library

Studies repeatedly document how use of clinical evidence enhances how providers practice, which directly correlates with improved patient outcomes and satisfaction, as well as high-quality health care.

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health providers, supported by a robust Research and Academics team, engage in research and quality initiatives as published in peer-reviewed literature and presented globally, improving patient care everywhere.

Funding our VMFH library and qualified librarians demonstrates our commitment to quality of care, evidence-based practice, and lifelong learning.

Our professional librarians are essential partners in providing excellent health care, achieving optimal patient outcomes, and attaining organizational goals. Contact them to:

  • Improve clinical decision-making by maximizing evidence-based practice
