This review is from: Transforming Health Care: Virginia Mason Medical Center's Pursuit of the Perfect Patient Experience (Hardcover)"If it was easy, anybody could do it..." The story of the "pursuit of the perfect patient experience" by the people of VMMC is truly an inspiration that calls each of us again to the pursuit of excellence in our leadership and service in health care. This well-written story provides us information for our heads and inspiration for our hearts. It shows us with a substantial real-world example that we can do profoundly better when we wholeheartedly pursue excellence in patient-focused care in a committed, collaborative and creative manner. The ongoing story of the pursuit of extraordinary service to people by the people of VMMC is compelling evidence that although it is not easy, it is the right thing to do, and we can do it, too. "It is the stories we tell others and the stories we tell ourselves that determine the quality of our lives." This is a story worth reading, worth telling, and worth living.
