Transforming Surgical Outcomes Together

Effective Partners

MSQC is a collaborative of Michigan Hospitals dedicated to overall surgical quality improvement, including better patient care and lower costs. We are multidisciplinary and inclusive as we work together to transform surgical quality and deliver care that is cost effective.

Founded in 2005 under the sponsorship of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network (BCBSM / BCN), today we provide our 66 member hospitals with practical approaches to better patient outcomes and lower costs.
