Our Health Research & Quality Center

Our Mission

We aim to advance research and quality improvement activities to sustain high-quality patient care and build healthier communities.


Our Vision

We envision a diversified research and quality improvement portfolio that advances Samaritan Health Services’ goals for excellence in patient care, its prominence as a leading regional health care system, and its commitment to improving individual and community health.


Our Responsibility

We provide research support and administrative oversight for health and clinical research, quality improvement projects and studies, and other sponsored activities.

All proposals for external funding are routed through the Center for review and signatory approval prior to submission. The Center also provides oversight and support to ensure compliance with human subject protection regulations and other terms and conditions. Samaritan's Institutional Review Board (IRB) falls under the jurisdiction of the Center.
