St. John Broken Arrow Receives Accreditation from DNV
Broken Arrow, Okla., December 12, 2013 -- St. John Broken Arrow has been awarded full accreditation from DNV Healthcare for a three-year term. This accreditation provides compliance with the Medicare Conditions of Participation for Hospitals. DNV Healthcare is the only hospital accreditation program approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that integrates the ISO 9001 Quality Management System with the Medicare Conditions of Participation. St. John Broken Arrow is the first hospital in Tulsa County to achieve ISO compliance through DNV.
DNV hospital accreditation addresses the demands of today’s hospitals dedicated to patient-centered care. As part of the accreditation process, DNV surveyors will visit St. John Broken Arrow annually instead of every three years as done previously. The surveyors monitor the hospital’s adherence to patient safety criteria established by CMS, but also evaluate processes that impact patient care across various departments and facilities of the hospital.
This achievement signifies that St. John Broken Arrow continually delivers consistent high-quality healthcare to Broken Arrow and surrounding communities.
