Riverview Health was awarded accreditation from the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), an independent accreditation organization recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). It earned this distinction after the HFAP conducted an extensive and objective review of the quality and safety standards of Riverview Health.
“Riverview Health clearly demonstrates a commitment to quality patient care,” said 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.”
