Welcome to FSCI

Hospitals and providers work hard to provide the best possible care for patients, yet complications still occur. When they do, the patient’s health is jeopardized, additional treatment is required, and the cost of care increases. That is the last thing we want to have happen.

Through a new collaborative called the Florida Surgical Care Initiative (FSCI), the Florida Hospital Association and the American College of Surgeons are bringing hospitals and surgeons together in a statewide effort to prevent surgical complications, reduce costs and improve the quality of care for our patients. Our goal is to make Florida a national leader in health care quality.

By working together, Florida’s hospitals and surgeons will have a tremendous impact on improving care for Floridians. We will restore health faster, safer and at a lower cost.
