How to Join LaSQC

Hospitals that are interested in participating in the LaSQC Surgical Checklist Safety Initiative should complete a Facility Participant Agreement/Commitment Letter. You will immediately join a growing network of community and academic hospitals—large and small, rural and urban—committed to improving healthcare quality and value. Because of generous contributions by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana (BCBSLA) and the LHA Research and Education Foundation (LHAREF), the cost of participation will be very reasonable. Contact Angela Lockhart when your hospital is ready to sign a letter of commitment and for fee details. If you are not ready to move forward with a signed agreement but would like to learn more about the collaborative, contact Dr. Floyd “Flip” Roberts.
