Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality

The Armstrong Institute's goal is to eliminate preventable harm to patients and to achieve the best patient outcomes at the lowest cost possible, and then to share knowledge of how to achieve this goal with the world. Created with a $10 million gift from C. Michael Armstrong, former chairman of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Board of Trustees, the institute also provides an infrastructure that, for the first time, oversees, coordinates and supports patient safety and quality efforts across Johns Hopkins' integrated health care system.
