We Care.

UHD's Journey Towards Becoming a High-Reliability Organization

As SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University prepares to launch its new brand and identity shortly, University Hospital at Downstate (UHD)—Downstate’s clinical arm—will embark on We Care, an initiative that will guide us towards becoming a High-Reliability Organization (HRO).  

The We Care journey aligns with our mission, vision, and values, and reflects our collective commitment to providing exceptional patient care.    

Our Strategic Plan provides the structure to accomplish and sustain the We Care goal, which will strengthen UHD’s emphasis on patient safety, quality of care, health equity, workforce engagement, and the patient experience.   

Working together with leadership and our entire Downstate community, we invite you to join us and empower each other to build, strengthen, and engage in process improvement to impact quality and patient safety. 

The We Care journey and Downstate’s new brand and identity will both reinforce the ideals of the University’s clinical, education, and research mission by focusing on improving the overall health of our communities. 

We are thrilled to work with Press Ganey towards becoming a High-Reliability Organization. We look forward to your commitment and support in enhancing the UHD patient experience of safety, quality of service, and employee engagement. 

In short – Our Vision is to be the Best Place to Get Care and the Best Place to Give Care.
