About Our Conference

The Mohawk Valley Health System’s 2017 Campaign For Quality (CFQ) promises to give everyone in attendance a new perspective on today’s ever changing healthcare system.

This popular educational event, celebrating its 16th anniversary, features international, national and local experts presenting on current trends in healthcare, patient experiences, population health topics and patient safety initiatives. CFQ will be held at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York, on Friday, October 13, 2016, and is free to attend. A special evening presentation and dinner will be held on Thursday, October 12 at the Radisson Hotel in Utica, New York.

Our community’s health is a shared responsibility, shared by patients, their families, providers, our hospital staff and caregivers. Understanding how we can all work together for the benefit of a healthy community, learning more about what other organizations are doing to improve patient care, as well as promoting community health is at the heart of CFQ. It’s a true community event open to all employees and medical staff from our area hospitals as well as the general public. Joining forces for the seventh year with Iroquois Healthcare’s Annual Quality and Patient Safety Forum, the this year's CFQ offers something for everyone.

We hope you can join us at the 2017 Campaign For Quality! Be sure to check back for program updates. For more information contact Linda Lovrin at 315-624-6693 or llovrin@mvhealthsystem.org
