About Us: Quality & Patient Safety


As a patient it’s important to know that you’ll receive the best care possible. Patient safety and quality are at the heart of everything we do at Park Nicollet. We stay up-to-date in the latest research and techniques in each specialty and collaborate in ongoing education amongst staff and patients. We are fully accredited by the Joint Commission and celebrate many outstanding achievements each year.

Park Nicollet’s goals for quality and safety are supported by a comprehensive research program. Through research, we learn how to prevent and treat illness by developing and testing new medicines, vaccines, medical devices and procedures. As a result, Park Nicollet doctors are aware of the latest therapy choices and offer the most current treatments to patients.
