Awards & Recognition

Walla Walla General Hospital has been recognized for performance excellence in the Reduction of Hospital Acquired Pressure Ulcers (HAPU Stage II+) and Reduction of Injury Falls by the Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes, the nation’s first nurse quality indicators database.
