CHPSO Name Change

CHPSO is excited to announce a name change, from the California Hospital Patient Safety Organization (CHPSO) to just CHPSO. The logo is also redesigned to call out its parent organization, the Hospital Quality Institute. When founded, CHPSO solely focused on serving California hospitals, but as the organization expanded to the western United States and to other care settings, meeting the unmet needs of providers and patients across the continuum of care, it was only appropriate to have an identity inclusive of all members.

CHPSO serves the western United States of America, from the Mountain Time Zone west. Currently, CHPSO has over 340 members in nine states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and Washington. 

One of the first and largest patient safety organizations in the nation, CHPSO is a trusted leader in the analysis, dissemination and archiving of patient safety information.  CHPSO offers unmatched access to the emerging best practices of hundreds of hospitals in the USA.
