The "Big Red One" Hospital
Safety is a top priority
At Irwin Army Community Hospital we believe that keeping our patients and employees safe is non-negotiable. Safety is fundamental to delivering quality healthcare and a right of the patients who entrust us with their care.
We encourage patients, families and employees to participate in our safety program. They are empowered to intervene when they see a potential safety concern and report it to the hospital team. We have accomplished much since we began our safety program but ours is journey that is never ending.
