    Women's Health Center at The Brooklyn Hospital Center Certified for Patient Safety Processes by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists

    October 14, 2020

    The Women's Health Center, at The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) 121 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, has been awarded Safety Certification in Outpatient Practice Excellence (SCOPE) for Women’s Health Program certification. SCOPE is a safety-focused program of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). TBHC’s Women’s Health Center is among the first OB/GYN offices in the country to be certified. 

    SCOPE is a comprehensive patient safety review program available to medical practices in which obstetrics and/or gynecology services are provided. SCOPE assesses the implementation and use of patient safety concepts and techniques in the office setting. Participation in the SCOPE program is voluntarily and certification is provided based on a set SCOPE criteria. Patient safety is essential to providing optimal health care for women, and implementation of patient safety measures can reduce medical errors and risk, and lead to positive patient outcomes. By achieving SCOPE certification, TBHC’s Women’s Health Center has demonstrated excellence in patient safety processes.

    The Brooklyn Hospital Center is committed to helping improve patient safety. Pursuing and achieving certification through ACOG’s SCOPE program allowed TBHC to better understand their strengths, and enhance its already robust patient safety practices.

    The Women’s Health Center provides a full range of services including gynecological, prenatal and postnatal care, and family planning. This site is located right at the main hospital in Downtown Brooklyn. To make an appointment, please call 1-833-TBHC-NOW (833-824-2669).
