Riverview awarded for safety, quality
Announced Feb. 10, Riverview Health has been awarded accreditation from the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program for its quality and safety standards.
HFAP, an independent accreditation organization recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service, gave the distinction after it conducted an extensive and objective review of Riverview standards.
“Riverview Health clearly demonstrates a commitment to quality patient care,” stated Lawrence Haspel, DO chairman of the Bureau of Healthcare Facilities Accreditation for the HFAP. “We base our decision on federal standards, as well as recognized national standards for patient safety, quality improvement and environmental safety. Riverview Health met or exceeded the standards in every case.”
“This prestigious distinction is a great honor that reflects our commitment to always put patients and their families first,” said Joyce Wood, chief nursing officer, vice president of organizational improvement. “High-quality patient care is a top priority for us, and we make sure to always set the standard high for ourselves. These achievements would not be possible without the hardworking employees and medical team at Riverview Health.”
