Adirondack Health awarded accreditation for high quality and safety standards
SARANAC LAKE – Adirondack Health was awarded accreditation from the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), an independent, national organization recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Adirondack Health, the only full service health system in the Adirondack Park, has been accredited by HFAP since 2006.
The health system earned this distinction after HFAP conducted an extensive and objective three-day onsite review of all quality and safety standards throughout Adirondack Medical Center. In addition to the hospital, this comprehensive survey included the health centers, specialty care clinics, emergency departments and all other patient care areas.
“We’re proud to achieve this prestigious distinction,” said Ms. Chandler Ralph, President & CEO of Adirondack Health. “By awarding us accreditation, HFAP has recognized our commitment to providing outstanding care to our patients and our community. Providing high quality care is always a priority focus in our strategic plans and goals.”
In addition to HFAP accreditation, Adirondack Health has earned other distinctions in the past year for its commitment to exceptional care. They include:
• A “Top 100 Community Hospital” ranking by Becker’s Hospital Review.
• Recognition by a state-wide nurses association for leading patient care initiatives
• Designating Mercy Living Center a Community Nursing Home for veterans
• Awarded Center of Distinction for the Wound and Hyperbaric Treatment Center
