Mad River Community Hospital was recently commended by the nationally recognized Healthcare Accreditation Program (HFAP) for their excellent level of patient care. The extensive survey reviewed Mad River Community Hospital’s main hospital, outpatient clinics, physical therapy, and hospital governance.
Originally created in 1945, HFAP has been conducting objective reviews of services provided by hospitals. Mad River Community Hospital has been participating in accreditation surveys since their doors have opened in 1972. All hospitals nationwide need to be deemed accredited in able to operate.
HFAP surveyors are made up of healthcare professionals who have extensive knowledge in the medical field. The HFAP team conducted a 3-day survey of the hospital to review over 1700 standards; from something simple as to having the correct exit signs, to complex items relating to surgical procedures.
Pamela Floyd, Risk and Quality Manager at Mad River Community Hospital, was incredibly proud of all of the hard work, time, and effort the employees devoted to being survey-ready at all times. “It is our mission at Mad River Community Hospital to exceed the expectations of our patients and our community through quality care services. Based on our recent highly successful accreditation survey, all of our staff’s diligent efforts and dedication toward patient safety and quality care have been validated. This survey is a tribute to them.”
