Chelan, WA, February 2, 2020 – Lake Chelan Health announces the successful completion of its new accreditation from DNV GL.
To receive accreditation an organization must demonstrate that it meets or exceeds patient safety standards set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). As a world-leading certification body with objectives to safeguard life, property, and the environment, DNV GL is committed to supporting healthcare organizations improve patient safety.
DNV’s accreditation program, called NIAHO (National Integrated Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) uses the highest level of Quality Management Systems to conduct annual hospital surveys – instead of every 3 to 5 years – and encourages hospitals to openly share information across departments to continually improve clinical workflows and safety protocols.
“DNV accreditation is a significant achievement for Lake Chelan Health,” says CEO George Rohrich. “The strong work of the entire team made this possible. Congratulations, Lake Chelan Health!”
Lake Chelan Health joins more than 600 hospitals nationwide including 33 in Washington State to receive DNV accreditation. For more information about DNV GL hospital accreditation visit www.dnvglcert.com/healthcare.
