Hospital Improves Patient Safety
University Hospitals (UZ) Leuven provides medical and paramedical services to ambulant and hospitalized patients at five campuses. The hospital is deeply committed to delivering high-quality care and creating a better, safer environment for patients. In addition to becoming recognized as a leading research center, UZ Leuven sought, and received, accreditation from the Joint Commission International (JCI) an external, independent organization that accredits approximately 90 percent of hospitals in the United States. UZ Leuven is the first Belgian hospital to achieve this distinction, which acknowledges its focus on quality of care and patient safety.
