“It was an awesome year for Naval Health Clinic (NHC) Hawaii. One of the cornerstones of our health care operations is a continuous process improvement. The command’s culture embraces patient safety as everyone has a voice and that contributes to the success of the command,” said Capt. Lynn Wheeler, commanding officer, NHC Hawaii.”

Wheeler said, “As we begin a New Year, we are reminded that quality is a journey, not a destination and that everything we do must support readiness.”

Here are 10 of the many highlights:

• Empowered annual goal teams and 4DX teams accomplished amazing things—raising the “quality” bar every day.

• NHC Hawaii’s access to care is consistently at the top of Navy Medicine in acute and routine access.
