Quality at Truman Medical Centers
Providing accessible, quality health care to all patients who walk through
our doors forms the foundation of what we do at Truman Medical Centers.
Our peers have recognized TMC's commitment to quality and awarded us various
honors. They include:

University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) recognized TMC's contributions
Gold status in treatment of heart failure, heart attack and
pneumonia care. Awarded this designation in 2004 by
Missouri's Medicare Quality Improvement Organization as part of its

A Top 100 Hospital Performance Leader. TMC
Lakewood joined Solucient's honor roll in 2004.
Quality is always top of mind with TMC. We recently adopted an
initiative called TMC's Innovation Process (TIP), which focuses on:
- customer satisfaction,
- speed of delivery of care, and
- operations excellence through initiatives to lower costs.
TIP is an integral part of TMC's culture, creating faster and more effective
change in patient care while minimizing or eliminating activities that are
not patient centered. This quality philosophy will pave the way toward an
error-free operational, clinical and non-clinical environment.
