Six Sigma Green Belt – Healthcare

Ensure the Health of Your Organization With a Six Sigma Green Belt – Healthcare Certificate!

Six Sigma Green Belt - Healthcare

With Newly Enhanced Classroom Experience!

Through an examination of real-life examples, case studies and industry-specific issues, this course illuminates the advantages of Six Sigma in the healthcare setting. For instance, since finishing her Villanova University Six Sigma online program, Karen Gemerdinger, RN, MSN, of Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa has noted the significant impact Six Sigma has made throughout her organization:

"By implementing Six Sigma practices, we showed that a quality improvement project can lead to many benefits, not only patients in decreased mortality, but also to physicians and nurses by making it easier for them to provide the best evidence-based, guideline-directed care possible, and to the hospital itself with decreased lengths of stay and decreased costs."
