The Accreditation Commission for Health Care has re-accredited Hillcrest Hospice for another 3 years after a 3-day on-site survey. Hillcrest Hospice has maintained ACHC accreditation since 2011. ACHC is a national organization developed by homecare and alternate-site healthcare industry providers. Achieving accreditation is a process where healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
“This is another way to reaffirm our commitment to excellence and enhancing the lives of aging adults,” Reggie Ripple, Vice President of Home & Community Services said. “It’s an honor to be recognized for our service by a national organization.”
ACHC is an independent, private, not-for-profit corporation established in 1986. ACHC has gained respect and recognition as an accrediting organization uniquely committed to health care providers. They have adopted a participatory approach to standards development that actively solicits the input of those most knowledgeable about current approaches to care. The result is a set of practical standards that promotes quality services and ensures optimum care for the patient. The entire accreditation process is a collaborative, educational, and genuinely patient-focused approach.
