Medical Excellence

Focusing on Quality

Our commitment to medical excellence has been widely recognized.

We were the first hospital in South Carolina to be awarded the coveted Pathway to Excellence® designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the largest and most respected nurse credentialing organization in the world. Beaufort Memorial has been re-designated as a Pathway to Excellence hospital twice, most recently in 2017.

National information about care provided to Medicare patients is compiled in charts at Our Core Measures show how we compare.

We received the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission, an organization that upholds national standards for healthcare quality and safety. The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval directly reflects the excellence of care you will receive. Our Beaufort Memorial Physician Partners practices are also accredited by The Joint Commission, a distinction few physician practices can claim.

We received the American Heart Association’s designation as a “Get With The Guidelines—Coronary Artery Disease” hospital for our participation in an initiative to reduce the risk of repeat heart attacks.

We were featured along with other "Guideline" hospitals in the July 2012 edition of U.S.News & World Report.
