Haven Hospice was recently recognized as a hospice organization by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC).
Operating since 1985, ACHC is the only national health care accrediting organization started at the grass-roots level by a few home-care providers endeavoring to create a viable option of accreditation sensitive to the needs of small providers. The model was designed to ensure a voice for providers. Accreditation is done by professional peer review administered by a private nonprofit organization, which is structured to establish higher standards than state or federal requirements. Accreditation is the most commonly accepted means of assuring quality care and products.
In recognizing Haven Hospice, ACHC said the organization has demonstrated a commitment to providing quality care and services to consumers through compliance with ACHC’s nationally recognized accreditation standards and is therefore granted accreditation for hospice. The accreditation runs from Dec, 21, 2011 through Dec. 21, 2014.
